A CBI spokesperson in a statement said that the arrested accused will be produced before the Competent Court.
“Incriminating documents like fake call letters, fake appointment letters, and fake training dossiers of job seekers were recovered during the searches, the CBI Spokesperson added.
It was alleged that the modus operandi of these accused was to approach desperate jobseekers who were preparing for examinations for the posts of various Central government departments.

The case was registered against six accused and unknown public servants & others.

“The accused adopted the practice of setting up fake training centres in different states for a set of job seekers and conducted subsequent training for job seekers with the motive of attempting to show the genuineness of their modus. The accused also used to call jobseekers to hand over appointment letters and training call letters at actual government premises to present a genuine set-up,” the agency statement added.
The CBI officials conducted searches at nine places including Patna, Mumbai, Bangalore, Mangalore & Dhanbad including two fake training centres at Sakinaka, Mumbai and one in Patna (Bihar) in which around 25 jobseekers were being imparted training after fake appointments for jobs, purportedly of various Central government departments like FCI, Railways, GST, etc.
