According to details, DSP Nisar Brohi received Rs0.7mn each from 130 candidates, handing them fake job cards and appointment letters for Hyderabad Training Branch. The official collected Rs90 million overall through fake recruitment.
The massive fraud was exposed when newly-recruited cops reached Police Head Office. Upon checking the records, it was revealed that the appointment letters handed to recruits were not genuine.
Sources said that ADIG Fida Shah was also involved in the scam in 2014.

Out of these 1800 personnel, 103 belong to Karachi, while others hail from different parts of the province.
