The district police on Tuesday busted a racket in which 14 people were involved in joining the training program of the 3rd grade commerce clerk held at the training centre of North Western Railway here at Udaipur. 11 candidates and 2 railway guards in connection with the racket were arrested by the police who also seized fake documents and ID cards from them.
Station House Officer of Amabamata police station Rajendra Singh Jain informed UT that the training session for the position of 3rd grade Commerce Clerk was being held at Railway Training School of North Western Railways here at Udaipur.
32 selected candidates had already arrived at the training centre on Monday but one S.K Mishra of UP came at the centre with 11 other candidates and submitted their letters with the department to join the training. However, when the letters were verified by the concerned officials, it was found that such letters were neither issued by the Railway Mandal nor the 11 candidates were selected by the department.
Moreover, the pay grade in the letter was mentioned wrongly as it was written Rs. 1900 instead of Rs. 2000 for the position of 3rd grade railway commerce clerk.
Latter when everything got clear during the verification, the accused accepted their crime and were all booked under various sections of IPC.
The arrested candidates were identified as Anup Malhotra of Sodala Jaipur, Gajendra of Agra (U.P), Rishabh Kumar of Mathura, Neeraj of Jotwada Jaipur, Pooja of Jaipur, Swatantara Yadav of Bindoli UP, Yasha Chopda of Kota ,Sunny Kapoor of Dhaar M.P, Hitesh Meena,Vivek and Lolesh of Kota. Along with them two more men Rajkumar Chopra of Kota and Abhishek were arrested by cops out of which Rajkumar is a Railway Guard and Abhishek is his associate, SHO added.
During their initial interrogation the candidates informed the cops that the accused S.K Mishra took Rs. 3-4 Lac from each candidate against providing jobs in Railways. Besides they had appeared in the examination at Bhopal center followed by medical checkup. Upon getting such vital information from the candidates, police is suspicious of involvement of officials from the concerned department in the racket as the investigation is still going on, added SHO.
This is to be considered that a similar racket involved in taking training at the Railway Training Centre using false means was busted by Udaipur police.
