More than 100 youths in Sindhuli district have filed a police complaint saying that they were duped by two men on the pretext of offering them jobs.
They said Ekandra Magar and Hemraj Gurung contacted them via Facebook and collected Rs 6,700 each as a training fee, promising them jobs.
One of the victims, Kusum Karki, from Tinpatan Rural Municipality, said Magar and Gurung claimed to be the chairperson and the district coordinator of Green Club Nepal and offered him a job that paid a monthly salary of Rs 30,000 and an additional allowance of Rs 10,000. Karki said he was deployed to several villages for the job, but he never got paid.
“When I demanded my salary, Magar said that he would pay me soon. Now he has stopped receiving my calls,” Karki said. Keshav Bamjan of Kamalamai Municipality-2 also has a similar grievance.
The victims filed a complaint at the Central Investigation Bureau of Nepal Police in Kathmandu.
Magar, one of the accused, claims that Green Club Nepal was set up to provide jobs, and it was the employees who had walked out without completing their jobs. “We can only pay after they have worked for six months. Not much work has been done yet. How can we pay them?” he said.
