Amanat Outsourcing Job Service and Suppliers Company Ltd is defrauding job seekers in the name of giving jobs at different government and private organisations.

Diploma Engineer Alamgir Hossain, who applied for job in the company, has been defrauded.

Last year, he applied for a job in response to an advertisement floated in newspapers by the company. The advertisement invited applications for engineering job at Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant.

In the interview board he was told that he would have got the job if he paid Tk1.5 lakh. Allured by false promise, Alamgir sold a piece of land and paid Tk1.30 lakh to Jahirul Islam, managing director of the company. In the last February, Alamgir was given a false appointment letter to join the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant. When he went there to join his job, he was told that the appointment letter was fake and he was cheated.

In another case, Ayatullah, son of Jarip Molla and Nurjahan Begum of Tularampur in Narail, was cheated by the company. The company took money in the name of giving him job at Padma Bridge’s Railway project.

Likewise, the company allegedly defrauded many youths in the country.

Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has already received many complaints in this regard, sources said.

Mohammad Nasim, inspector of Criminal Investigation Department’s Dhaka Metro North, told the Daily Sun that they primarily came to know that the company cheated about 200 job seekers.

The company took about Tk3 crore from them in the name of giving jobs. The number of victims will be many more and the amount will be much more, he said.

He said that they were trying to arrest the authorities of the company.

Md Taher Mia, recruiting officer of the company, said what they did was legal and they did not take bribe from anybody in the name of giving jobs.

Khalidul Haque Howlader, special superintendent of police(Dhaka Metro North) of the CID,  said that the so-called outsourcing company are advertising seeking applications for job at Railway, Bank, Biman, Customs, Padma Bridge Project, ship companies etc.
