Silchar, Dec 31: Three youths from Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh had reported to the authorities of the Border Security Force Headquarters at Masimpur in Cachar district.
However, according to police, officials from the BSF headquarters here have claimed that based on their investigation, the appointment letters submitted by them turned out to be 'fake' and that the youths are likely to have been duped.
Police said that the BSF officials have registered a complaint in this regard.
Further, Police informed that during the preliminary investigation, the youths identified as Chandan Singh, Amit Kumar and Sohail, residents of Gorakhpur stated that desperate for jobs, they had paid huge money to a person based out in West Bengal to get jobs in the Force in the post of Constable GD and through the appointment letters, they were asked to report to the Headquarters at Masimpur here.
"The youths have been detained for investigation and the matter has been taken up with the concerned authorities. We are also communicating with Gorakhpur Police and waiting for their response on this. The youths had reported to the BSF authorities who had investigated the matter and found that the letters were not authentic and brought the youths to us. A case has been taken up in this regard and we are looking into the aspects of whether they received the fake appointment letters or they are a part of the plot," Cachar SP Ramandeep Kaur told media persons on Thursday.
