The complainant paid Rs60,000 in front of Abrarul Hasan and Ali Hasan, while also handing him copies of his educational certificates. The alleged fraudster neither helped him with the job nor returned the money. The accused also employed delay tactics, prompting the complainant to inquire further about the suspect.
Later, Mujtaba learned that the accused allegedly scammed eight other people, identified as Ghulam Muhammad, Arslan Zafar, Ali Hassan, Muhammad Rizwan, Abrar Israr Ahmad, Muhammad Shoaib, Moazzam Tariq, Babar Hayat and Mazhar Hussain. The suspect used to take the victims to the office of the agency to make them believe he worked there.
It emerged that that Munawar Shahzad Khan is neither an employee of the agency nor a member of the recruitment centre’s staff.
