Four TTEs (travelling ticket examiners) of the South Western Railway have been booked for duping several job aspirants in a railway recruitment scam. The Anti-Corruption Branch of the Central Bureau of Investigation (ACBCBI) has filed an FIR against Srinath, M Raghu, R Pradeep Kumar (all from Mysuru) and Hanumanthappa from Hubballi, and some unknown persons. The alleged kingpin Srinath is absconding. The modus operandi was to dupe job aspirants. They first created a fake website that went by the name, Railway Recruitment Board (RRB). Gullible candidates, contacted through agents, were asked to write online tests. They were asked to pay hefty sums in advance in order to get the jobs. Later the aspirants underwent medical examination and were called for interviews, following which they were issued fake appointment letters. The ACB-CBI, Bengaluru, which busted the racket, said more officials could be involved. The CBI is in process of collecting evidence
