New Delhi: The CBI has lodged a case against unknown persons for allegedly taking out an advertisement in a national daily regarding recruitment in the ministry of rural development with the intention of cheating innocent people. The accused promised as many as three hundred vacancies in the ministry in different posts. They had asked the applicants to pay around Rs 500 as fee for applying to the posts.
