He came by air from B’desh to Jaipur, committed robberies and flew back


Jaipur, Sep 24 | The Rajasthan police have arrested a thief, originally a resident of Bihar, who frequently used to visit Jaipur in a plane from Bangladesh, then made a recce of the city dressed as a poor man, slept on the city streets and returned in a plane after committing a robbery in the city.

The thief has been accused of thefts amounting to crores of rupees.

As per police officials, the accused, identified as Mohammad Rajjak, was a resident of Katihar, but was staying in Bangladesh since the last few years.

He used to travel frequently in a plane to commit robberies at plush locations in Jaipur and then went back by air.

He married thrice by changing his identity and has been staying with a different wife after each theft.

However, none of his wives knew about him being a thief.

Police identified him after scanning CCTV footage in the city. They arrested his accomplice first and got information about him.

Upon coming to know that he has left Jaipur with wife and kids, they contacted the Uttar Pradesh police and he was caught with the help of the railway police.

The accused had planned to escape to Bangladesh from Kolkata via train from Kanpur.

As he had conducted many robberies, the police checked CCTV footage and he was seen roaming on the streets in a ‘vest’ and ‘lungi’ in these areas. Thereafter, the police started tracking him.

When asked, the accused said, “I used to reach Jaipur in a plane, do recce in undergarments and departed from the city by air after my task (theft) was over.”

He was staying in Bangladesh with his second wife and kids in Dinazpur and also had a passport.

“I used to escape to Bangladesh after committing robberies in Jaipur,” he revealed.

He committed over 7 robberies in the Pink City with his accomplice Salim.

The accused knew every lane and bylane of the city and had done a complete recce of the city wearing a ‘vest’ and ‘lungi’.

Police said that the accused was seen outside many locations where thefts had taken place. Also, at times, he was seen sleeping on the footpaths.

Investigations are on to learn if there are other people involved along with him, as police officials say it is difficult for only two of them to conduct thefts at so many places.

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Most students pursuing an MBA come with the sole objective of having a decent job offer or a promotion in the existing job soon after completion of the MBA. And most of them take loans to pursue this career dream. According to a recent survey by education portal Campusutra.com  74% MBA 2022-24 aspirants said they would opt for education loans.

There are exceptional cases like those seeking master’s degree or may have a family business to take care of or an entrepreneurial venture in mind. But the exception cases are barely 1%. For the rest 99%, a management degree is a ticket to a dream job through campus placements or leap towards career enhancements. Stakes are high as many of them quit their jobs which essentially means loss of 2 years of income, apprehension and uncertainty of the job market. On top of that, the pressure to pay back the education loans. Hence the returns have to be high. There is more than just the management degree. Colleges need to ensure that they offer quality management education which enables them to be prepared for not just the demands of recruiters and for a decent job but also to sustain and achieve, all along their career path.

  • So, what exactly are the B Schools doing to prepare their students for the job market and make them industry ready ?
  •  Are B schools ready to deliver and prepare the future business leaders to cope up with the disrupted market ?  

These are the two key questions every MBA aspirant needs to ask, check and validate before filling the MBA application forms of management institutes. And worth mentioning that these application forms do not come cheap. An MBA aspirant who may have shortlisted 5 B Schools to apply for, may end up spending Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 15,000.00 just buying MBA / PGDM application forms.

While internship and placements data of some management institutes clearly indicates that recruiters today have specific demands. The skill sets looked for are job centric and industry oriented. MBA schools which have adopted new models of delivery and technology, redesigned their courses, built an effective evaluation process and prepared the students to cope with the dynamic business scenario, have done great with campus placements despite the economic slow down.

However, the skill set being looked for by a consulting company like Deloitte or KPMG may be quite different from FMCG or a manufacturing sector. Institutes need to acknowledge this fact and act accordingly.

  • Management institutes should ensure that students are intellectually engaged, self motivated and adapt to changes fast. In one word ‘VUCA ready’.
  • B Schools should encourage students to participate in national and international competitive events, simulations of business scenarios.
  • Institutes should have the right mix of faculty members with industry exposure and pure academics.

The placement records of 2021 across top management institutes indicated the fact that recruitment is happening, skilled talent is in demand and certain management institutions continued to attract recruiters even in the middle of an ongoing crisis.

It is time, all management institutes rise to the occasion, understand market realities and identify areas of improvement at both ends – students and faculty.

After all, the stakes are high at both ends. B Schools taking corrective measures will stay while those which are lagging will end up shutting down.
