Azamgarh: A man was today detained for
allegedly duping people of lakhs of rupees by promising them jobs in Fisheries department, police said.

Police detained Harilal Nishad, a resident of Ambedkar
Nagar district, from Mandya area here following a complaint
that he had taken Rs 1.75 lakh from eight people in 2008,
claiming that he is the relative of state Fisheries Minister,
Dharmraj Nishad and could get them jobs in the fisheries
department.

As the complaint was registered in the Ambedkar Nagar
district, the police is waiting for a team from the district
to reach here.

Harilal, however, alleged that the minister had taken
money from him but he neither appointed people or returned the
money.

Investigations were on, the police said.
