An actor from the Marathi film industry will be probed by the Maharashtra police after a case of cheating was registered against him in the state’s Ahmednagar police station.

According to a report in PTI, a police official said, "He will be called for an inquiry in connection with the case, in which the complainant had accused three other persons of cheating him on the false promise of offering a government job to him in the state secretariat – Mantralaya.”.
The Ahmednagar police, on September 9, busted a racket of a group of people who were cheating people by offering them fake jobs in Mantralaya and in return would take money from them. The police also arrested three people in this regard.
"The gang members had promised a government job to the complainant in this case and demanded Rs 5 lakh for the recruitment order. The complainant had paid Rs 2 lakh cash to the accused persons at the guest house of the agriculture university at Rahuri in Ahmednagar district,” said the official;. He further added that Rs 3 lakh was to be paid by the complainant after getting the joining order.
As per the official, fake orders of the state General Administration Department were created by the accused persons with the help of computer graphics. Three forged joining orders, seals and government's stamp were recovered from the accused persons during a search conducted by the police team. "During their interrogation, the two arrested accused told the police that they had created stamps and seals with the help of Suraj Pawar," the official said.
