Bengaluru: Some 1,000 candidates were duped by a gang which organized a fake examination promising jobs to aspiring teachers in Jayanagar on Sunday.
The gang is suspected to be part of a nationwide racket with several people posting similar experiences across the country online.
In two batches of 500 each, the candidates arrived at MES School on 10th Cross, Jayanagar 4th Block on Sunday, but soon realized there was no examination. Each of them had paid Rs 1,600.
Police said the gang concocted an examination, titled S Radhakrishnan All India Teacher’s Examination, and advertised online under a fake name, National Professional Testing Bureau which even had an elaborate website. In the advertisement, they claimed that based on the results of the all-India test, postings will be made across the country.
The fraudsters had approached the school in Jayanagar to conduct the exam. A certain amount was paid as deposit as well. A soft copy of a question paper and OMR sheets were also given to the authorities.
