A former Air Force officer has been arrested for cheating several people in the name of getting jobs in the Army and Railways. Delhi Police told about this on Thursday.
Police said the accused Chakveer Chaudhary (35) is a resident of Agra and was earlier removed from service. A senior police officer said that he was absconding since a case was filed against him in 2015, following which a non-bailable warrant was issued and the process of marking him as a declared criminal started last year.
The official said that Chakveer Chaudhary and his associate Than Singh cheated 18 people by running a fake recruitment racket and cheated them of about Rs 2.7 crore. Than Singh was arrested in November 2019 and currently on bail due to Kovid-19.
