The gang members, active mainly in cheating youths from Delhi and Haryana, had conducted fake medical tests at a hotel in Bhubaneswar, Odisha.
In the Akshay Kumar-starrer movie, a similar modus operandi was employed to cheat unemployed youths.
They have cheated nearly 150 unemployed youths from several states, police said, adding that all the accused are on police remand and further investigation is going on.
Rajiv Ranjan, additional commissioner of police (crime), said the accused were arrested the same day from Mahipalpur where they were delivering a fake admit card to one of the candidates.
He also sent unemployed youths to Bhubaneswar (Odisha), Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu), Pune (Maharashtra) for conducting fake medical and physical tests, the police officer said.
