One held for fake overseas job racket


The Margao police on Monday arrested Gracias Leno Barreto, 24, on charges of allegedly recruiting persons for overseas jobs without any authorization.
Police sources said that Barreto had advertised in a local daily inviting candidates interested in an overseas job for an interview to be conducted on Monday at a coffee shop in the city.
Acting on a tip off, a team of Margao police raided the coffee shop and found the accused interviewing one of the job aspirants. Three other persons were also found in the shop waiting for their turn to be interviewed, police said.
Margao police arrested the accused under Sections 420 and 511 of the Indian Penal Code and Section 12 (24) of the Immigration Act. [TOI]
