The man arrested on Saturday for allegedly using Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Sandeep Singh's name for duping seven youths was on Sunday produced before a court, which sent him to one-day police remand.

Pehowa resident Maya Ram, in his complaint, had alleged that Mandeep Saini would introduce himself as a Hindi daily journalist as well as a close aide of the minister and assured of arranging jobs in Kurukshetra University and Power Department. In all, he pocketed Rs 78,560 for jobs of seven youths.

Sports Minister Sandeep Singh had directed the police to register a case and investigate the matter after Maya Ram apprised him of the incident.
