Police arrested six persons on fraud charges after they duped over 60 persons claiming to secure their job as a worker in Embassy of India in Nepal.

Police said the arrestees had been assuring that they will be employed on behalf of Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) of the Indian government.

Police identified the arrestees as Ramananda Nauniya, 41 of Rajbiraj; Santosh Karki, 28 and Binod Karki, 30 of Dolakha; Padam Bahadur Shrestha, 41 of Kavre; Chitra Bahadur Shrestha, 29 of Ramechap and Geeta Maharjan, 32 of Maharajgunj.

Nauniya with the help from other arrestees had been using fake letterhead of Indian Embassy to prepare a counterfeit contractual agreement of the job. He would charge interested individual from Rs300,000 to Rs500,000.

"Many times, Nauniya would ask those 'hired' people to go to certain areas and observe the activities and report back," said SSP Dibesh Lohani, Chief of Metropolitan Police Crime Division, Teku. "Apart from misusing the letterhead of the Embassy, they had also duped millions of rupees from various people. He had asked people to provide him with four-month salary in return of the job."

Police began investigation into the matter after over 12 victims lodged complaint at the MPCD against Nauniya and his aides. The victims have said that they were promised a monthly salary of Rs75,000 for the job.

SSP Lohani said statements from victims so far show that there are more people who were duped by this group.
