LAKHIMPUR: A Lakhimpur based youth has urged the State Government and Police Department to initiate action against fraudsters' racket after he lost his hard-earned money by falling in their trap.

In this regard, this youth, named Tarun Goswami, resident of Naharani village under Bongalmora area of the district addressed a press conference at North Lakhimpur Press Club on Tuesday. In the press conference, Tarun Goswami explained how the fraudsters' racket had exploited him with the promise of providing him permanent job in the establishment of Oil India Limited at Duliajan in Dibrugarh district. Tarun Goswami said that he had been earning his living by working as a private electrician at Duliajan since 2003. Then he came to contact with one Ujjal Saikia of Baruah Tiniali, Syed Rasid Ahmed of Sobji Bari and Mukul Baruah of Tipling Chariali. They lured him by promising that they would manage a permanent job for him in OIL at Duliajan if he paid them money. Establishing trust upon them, Tarun Goswami gave the racket an amount of Rs 20 lakh in several instalments. Tarun Goswami said that he deposited the amount in the bBank account of Ujjal Saikia from 2016 to 2018. He added that he collected the amount by taking loan from several persons, selling ornaments of his wife and keeping his own land under mortgage.

"But the racket could not give me a permanent job. They did not even return me the amount despite my consecutive requests. Rather, they have issued threats to my life," Tarun Goswami said.

He further said that though he filed a case against the racket at Duliajan Police Station on July 31 in 2021, it had not come into effect till date. Under such circumstances, the victim youth urged the State Government and the Police Department to take action to bust the racket. He said that 16 more youths, in addition to him, gave money to the racket for permanent jobs.
