Hyderabad: A doctor from the city who was waiting to join a hospital to start practice was allegedly cheated by cybercrooks promising a job in a corporate hospital.
The woman, a resident of SR Nagar, completed her MBBS last year and was waiting for a suitable job opportunity and package. Sources said as part of her job trials, she had also posted her profile on some job portals. According to the police, she received a call from an unidentified person promising to arrange a job for her with a salary of Rs 85,000 in a corporate hospital.
