Two men were detained on Monday evening, including one from in front of the main gate of the Calcutta Municipal Corporation, for duping people with promises of jobs in the civic body.
The man who was picked up from outside the CMC gate had claimed to have contacts in the civic body and allegedly used to take Rs 10,000 from job aspirants, an officer of New Market police station said.
The man had apparently introduced himself to the police as Amitabha Bose, an officer of New Market police station said. “We had information about this person. He was detained today from outside the main gate of the CMC building, where he said he was waiting for some candidates to interview them,” he said.
Bose allegedly mentioned the name of a CMC-affiliated contractor and another man, who he claimed was an employee of the CMC, as being involved in the racket.
Based on his statement, a man named Dibyendu Bardhan was detained, too, on Monday evening.
