Police on Monday arrested an alleged fraudster on charge of his involvement in cheating people in the name of giving a job to the post of police constable.
The detained person has been identified as Habib Rahman, a resident of Mohammadpur village under Bagmara upazila in the district.
Police sources said Habib signed an agreement with Abdul Hai, son of Jafar Hossain of Saidhara village under the same upazila, alluring him to give a job in police constable post against Taka nine lakh. As part of the agreement, he received Taka 57,000 in cash, two bank cheques and three non-judicial stamps from Hai.
Later, Abdul Hai wanted to get back the money and other goods from Habib when he was unsuccessful in getting the job. But, Habib doesn't pay heed to the request. In this odd situation, Hai lodged a case with Bagmara Police Station in this connection. Subsequently, police arrested Habib and recovered the money and other goods from his possession this noon, said Ifte Khayer Alam, Additional Superintendent of Police.
