HYDERABAD: A youth was on Thursday arrested for duping jobless girls. Promising jobs, the fraudster took away gold ornaments from some victims when they expressed their helplessness to give him cash to provide the jobs. He even proposed to some of them after meeting them for just a few hours.

Punjagutta ACP D Venkata Narsaiah said the 28-year-old accused, Ch Aravind alias Rahul alias Birraju Rama Raju alias Birraju Rahul Raju, is a native of West Godavari district and is currently residing at Film Nagar.

Aravind completed B.Com and did a diploma in a multimedia course but could not find a job. He took money from several of his friends and incurred debts.

“For easy money, he targets unemployed girls. He downloads resumes from job portals like naukri.com and others and prepares fake offer letters. Later, he asks them to meet him for a formal interview and here he demands money from them. If the victim tells him that she is not having money, he takes away their gold ornaments,’’ the ACP said, adding that he cheated five girls.

Then he pledges the gold ornaments with Mannappuram finance in Rethibowli. Police recovered 93.5 gm gold ornaments pertaining to four cases worth Rs 2.50 lakh.

“Aravind posed as an ITI graduate from Mumbai. Talking in fluent English, Aravind tells them that he is a successful businessman,’’ the ACP said.
