The Sambalpur Cyber police today arrested accused Paresh Bhoi, an Economics lecturer, and produced him before court for the offence.
Few days ago, the accused sent a mail to the College Principal Sandhyarani Mishra from the fake ID mentioning corruption in clerk appointment asking the former as to why action will not be taken against the irregularity.
