Later, after completion of interviews, he forwarded fake job offer letters to their mail IDs and when the complainant and other victims verified those job offer letters, they found them to be fake. “During the course, Ramana Rao has collected approximately Rs 60 lakh from several unemployed youth and shared the collected amounts with the other accused. He is also involved in other cases in Hyderabad,” said Avinash Mohanty, DCP, Detective Department.
