Thane, Nov. 1 (PTI): Two men were arrested by police in Thane, Maharashtra on Thursday for allegedly duping at least 40 people by promising them jobs in the railway.
Police stumbled upon the racket when they arrested one of the accused for illegal possession of arms, said deputy commissioner of police (crime).

Acting on a tip-off, the Anti-Extortion Cell (AEC) of Thane Crime Branch arrested Rakesh Salunke, the DCP said.
Two pistols, a revolver and cartridges were recovered from him, who said he had procured them from Nitin Pagare.

However, the probe took an unexpected turn when police found that Salunke was carrying bogus interview call letters purportedly issued by the Central Railway and fake rubber stamps.

The duo allegedly took INR 2 lakh for facilitating a job and issued fake interview letters, the police officer said.
