The Crime Investigation Department (CID) on Wednesday arrested two persons for issuing fake appointment orders to students of engineering colleges.

According to the police, their modus operandi was to approach engineering colleges in rural and urban areas posing as representatives of companies like IBM, Elcon, Mphasis, etc. They cheated around 426 students out of Rs 2.13 lakh rupees with their fake promises.

The accused, JVK Dinesh Kumar and Caxton Christ Das, were arrested by a CID Team in Bangalore on Wednesday and taken to Rajahmundry to be produced in the court.  Police asked the engineering college managements to verify the antecedents of recruiters before allowing them to conduct job interviews on their campuses.

“JVK Dinesh Kumar and Caxton Christ Das have also been involved in similar criminal cases of cheating B.Tech students at Kandukur, Kakinada, Gandepalli and Tadepalli town,” said SV Ramanamurhty, additional director-general of police (CID).

The CID police have registered cases against the accused under section 419 (cheating by personation), 420 (cheating), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) and 471 (using as genuine a forged document or electronic record) read with 34 of the IPC.
