Bhubaneswar: Police have arrested a 33-year-old fraudster in connection with the Dhamra Port recruitment scam.
The accused used to take the job aspirants for a ride by posting fictitious job offers in Dhamra port by creating a fake web portal of the port.
The arrested person- Santosh Kumar Panda, a resident of Sankhesore under Tirtol police station jurisdiction of Jagatsinghpur district has confessed to the crime.
This scam had duped numerous job aspirants from across the country by collecting Application Fee of varying amount for the fake job vacancies, on multiple occasions.
The management of Dhamra Port ensured an FIR was lodged soon after it was brought to their notice in mid-November 2017. Primary concern of the management has been to make the public at large, aware of this on-going criminal activity and thereby safeguarding them through multiple press releases in different local as well as national newspapers. Thereafter, continuous and relentless assistance has been extended to Police Department throughout the investigation, through the company’s IT department and advisers.
