The police arrested a placement agency owner, Gaurav Arora, and booked nine others for cheating unemployed youth on the pretext of providing jobs.

The suspect had opened six offices in the tricity to dupe innocent people on the pretext of providing jobs in government institutions, banks and private companies.

A case under Sections 420, 406 and 120-B of the IPC was registered against Gaurav Arora and nine others at the Zirakpur police station today.

Zirakpur SHO Onkar Singh Brar said the suspect operated under three names and had given different addresses of Dhakoli, Panchkula and Sirsa to the victims. A sum of Rs 30,000 has been recovered from him. He was today produced in a Dera Bassi court, which sent him to three-day police remand.

Complainants Kishan Kumar and Ashok Kumar, residents of Mahmudpur village in Ambala, stated that they had paid Rs 6.42 lakh to the suspect after he promised to provide them jobs in the PGI or a bank or a private firm. The suspect had given them appointment letters of a private company too, which later turned out to be fake.

The complainants said when they tried to contact the suspect, his offices were found locked on July 17. Later, they approached the police.
