Two held for collecting
money promising jobs



Jalpaiguri (WB), June 13 : Two men were arrested for allegedly taking money from some people promising government jobs here, the police said today.

Prasanta Garai and Avijit Mullick were arrested last night for collecting Rs 5.40 lakh from some young men at a computer centre promising jobs in 2016.

The money was deposited with the owner of the computer centre. As no jobs were given to them till date, the duped people complained to the owner Soumya Saha, they said.

Saha lodged a complaint with the police that he had deposited the entire money to Prasanta Garai. On the basis of the complaint, police arrested the men. They also called Saha at the police station for enquiry.


In 2018, the Indian forces have carried out more than 1100 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary, resulting in the killing of 29 innocent civilians, while injuring 117 others.

Pakistan said this unprecedented escalation in ceasefire violations by India is continuing from the year 2017, when the Indian forces committed 1970 ceasefire violations.

The FO said the deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian laws.

"The ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation," the FO said.

The statement asked the Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement; investigate this and other incidents of ceasefire violations; instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire, in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary.

The Indian side should permit UNMOGIP to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions, it said.
