Sundargarh: Police have arrested a person for duping youths of more than Rs 2 lakh on the plea of providing jobs in the Indian Railways in Odisha’s Sundargarh district.
According to sources, the accused, identified as Umesh Tanti of Pandaridhipa under Sundargarh Town police limits, introduced himself as an officer in Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to four victims. The youths including three girls belong to Subdega Tangargaon in the district.
