The different callers namely Sanjay Shrivastav, Puja Kumari, Atul and Abhishek told Sangita that since she has filled up job form online through Quikr she will have to remit Rs 1550 for registration and lured her with a decent job. Later, the four accused having fictitious names asked Sangita from time to time to deposit Rs 2.10 lakh in the given account through Paytm.
