Chhattisgarh Police have arrested two persons from Agra and brought them to Durg city for cheating youths by impersonating as candidates in the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) constable recruitment exam 2021 in Durg.
Six persons were nabbed a week ago from Durg district regarding the same case following a complaint lodged by CISF officials with the police, Durg Superintendent of Police Dr Abhishek Pallava.
On Wednesday (May 18), the CISF authorities lodged a cheating case after the accused appeared in the CISF constable recruitment exam held by the Service Selection Commission (SSC) when the biometrics and photographs of the candidates did not match with the fake aspirants, he said.
Satyapal Singh (24) and Natthilal Verma (20), both from Agra, were taken into custody on Wednesday, the officer said.
The police investigation revealed that Singh appeared in the exam in place of four candidates while Verma took Rs 2 lakhs each for appearing in the CISF recruitment and training centre for physical test in Bhilai, Pallava said.
All the eight were part of a racket which arranged impersonators in written and physical tests on behalf of actual candidates and charged Rs 5 lakhs from each aspirant, he added.
A police constable identified as D.S. Tomar, posted in Madhya Pradesh, is the kingpin of the racket. He escaped when a police team tried to nab him there, Pallava said.
