The accused collected around Tk 10,000,000 from nine youths, says police

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police has arrested three persons including a woman on charges of duping nine people on the pretext of offering jobs in the banking sector.

Poritosh Kumar Haldar, 42, his wife Tithi Roy, 35, and Towhidul Islam, 38 were arrested from Motijheel and Dilkusha areas in Dhaka on Tuesday, said Additional SP Faruk Hossain.

The accused defrauded Tk90,50,000 from the victims through different mobile banking channels in the name of providing jobs in different banks as junior/senior officers.

During primary interrogation, CID officials came to know that Poritosh’s wife used to introduce herself as the wife of the managing director of a private bank. Then she arranged fake interviews for the victims and assured them of getting the job in exchange for money, said the CID official.

Later, the gang also provided them with fake appointment letters through postal mail. But later, the victims learnt that the letters were fake, he added. 

Later on March 7, one of the victims filed a case with Motijheel police station, and on March 10, the case was handed over to the CID, said Add SP Faruk. 

The arrestees primarily admitted to their involvement, he said, adding that drives were ongoing to arrest the other members of the gang.
