HYDERABAD: Andhra Pradesh government today asked the Crime Investigation Department (CID) to investigate the activities of three Hyderabad-based software companies, accused of duping gullible youths by promising them jobs.

The companies under the scanner are Prodigy Software and Career Solutions Pvt Ltd, Task Informatic Pvt Ltd and Tamco Technologies.

They allegedly collected money -- altogether several crores of rupees -- from unemployed youths after promising them jobs, but eventually cheated them. They are also accused of not paying salaries to the employees and closing the operations without following due procedures, government sources said.

Following several complaints, Information Technology and Communications Department had sought the Chief Minister's approval for launching a probe. As the Chief Minister gave his nod, the Department today entrusted the probe to CID.

"The government has decided to entrust the cases to CID to conduct a thorough enquiry and take appropriate steps," IT Secretary Sanjay Jaju said.
