Gurugram, Jan 31 (PTI) Two men were allegedly arrested by a team of a cybercrime police station for duping another man of Rs 40,000 on the pretext of getting him employed in a private company, an official said on Tuesday.

The main accused was identified as Nitish (22), a native of Bihar.

The investigating officer, Sub Inspector Amit Kumar said they used to call people in search of jobs from Bihar and after winning their trust tricked them into sending their bank account details to them.
