Bangalore, Jul 6: Police arrested four people in connection with a job racket within the IT company - Wipro's campus in the silicon city - Bangalore.

The four accused - Rajiv Ranjan, Mohammed Azar, Sathya Priya and M N Naryanana, who all are reportedly pursuing their management courses and well-educated, hail from Bihar, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala respectively.

The accused, somehow, had managed to enter the Wipro campus after misusing vendor access card, posed as officials of the IT company and had offered software engineer trainee job with appointment letter after conducting fake interviews.

The accused, who approximately cheated almost 37 people within 40 days, reportedly had Rs 58.43 lakh, ATM cards, pan cards, gold ornaments, vehicles and duplicate letters. All original certificates and documents of the victims were taken giving assurance of a guaranteed job with the IT giant.

The tech-savvy gang managed to post Wipro's logo on their letter heads which offered an annual income of Rs 2.94 lakh to the victims.

However, the police is investigating any kind of links of Wipro officials with the arrested gang, though there are no such hints yet in the case.
