Puttur, Nov 28: A man and woman have reportedly duped many people after promising them to get jobs at Mangaluru International Airport.

The incident came to light after a job aspirant woman filed a complaint at Puttur town police station accusing Yatish Mareel and Navya of taking Rs 8,000 each from at least 10 women including herself.

The complainant, Shruthi, a resident of Mangaluru, has claimed that Navya made her believe that there are 10 vacancies in the airport and that the recruitment will be done for all posts together.

“Navya introduced Yatish Mareel as her brother and assured that he will help me getting a job. I paid Rs 8,000 to him as per Navya’s instruction. Yatish collected Rs 80,000 from 10 people and demanded more money from us. When we said that it is not possible to give more money, he used abusive words and switched off his mobile phone. Later when we contacted Navya, she gave evasive answers.”

Police have booked a case against Yatish Mareel and Navya.
