Man posing as CBI SP held

Gurdaspur Police, acting on a tip off, arrested one Praveen Kumar who duped a number of unemployed persons of lakhs of rupees on the pretext of getting them lucrative jobs in the CBI. He has duped more than 20 youths in Pathankot area by issuing fake joining letters. Interestingly, many of them went to Calcutta and Bombay offices of the CBI to join there but returned back joining letters being fake. The person charged Rs. 3.57 lakhs for the post of Constable in the CBI and also promised rebate of Rs. 50,000/ for the Ex-servicemen.

After interrogation it was found that the same person was caught in Amritsar in 2002 by Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh, the then SP City Amritsar(Now SSP Gurdaspur) for similar types of cases. He was on bail in various cases pending against him. The man happens to be a witness in a case investigated by the CBI and worked as an informer (source) for some CBI officers.
