New Delhi: A 23-year-old man, who allegedly duped as many as 11,514 people to the tune of Rs 28,44,300 by creating a fake government website of All-India Soil and Land Use Survey Organisation (aislso.gov.com) and offering jobs to aspirants, was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The accused, in a bid to dupe the job seekers, had given an advertisement on his fake website and had invited applications. A source posted with the CBI said that the accused was identified as Sunil Kumar, a resident of Ganganagar in Rajasthan.

“The accused duped job seeking youth by asking for application fee. He received money through PayUmoney. After receiving complaints against him, we formed a team. With the help of technical surveillance we were able to nab him from Rajasthan. We have also received some documents related to the case from his hideout,” the source said.

As per information, AISLSO is the apex organisation. It deals with soil survey and land resource mapping. It works under the supervision of the department of agriculture, cooperation and farmers welfare, a branch of Government of India.

According to a CBI official, the accused received a number of applications for various posts. He asked the applicants to deposit the application fee in his PayUmoney account.

“The accused had opened a merchant account in the name of AISLSO in PayUmoney and another account with the Allahabad bank at Hanumangarh in Rajasthan. He collected around Rs 28,44,300 from the job seekers,” the official said.

After receiving the money, the accused started avoiding the applicants, who later approached the local police. A few of them approached the CBI too. The official said that they are probing the matter further.
