Kathmandu, Jun 11 (PTI) Nepalese police on Tuesday arrested three people for being involved in a case of cheating where millions of rupees were amassed from hundreds of people on the pretext of sending them to different countries in Europe and Asia for lucrative foreign jobs.

Rajkumar Bhatta, 28, of Chitawan Metropolitan City, Navin Bika, 22, of Kaski district and Pawan Panta, 23, of Pokhara Metropolitan City have been arrested for cheating over Rs. 150 million from three hundred people promising them to provide attractive jobs in different countries including Cambodia, New Zealand and France, according to the police.
