Love for settling abroad cost dear to a city-based businessman. Victim Ranjit Singh was reportedly duped of Rs13 lakh.
The incident came to light after accused Jagtar Singh, demanded Rs18 lakh on the pretext of sending him to Spain. While Ranjit is running his business of selling and buying of used cars, accused Jagtar Singh, a resident of Kapurthala, met him around five years ago through a common friend.
The accused after befriending him reportedly convinced him to shift his business to Spain and demanded Rs18 lakh for arranging his visa and tickets.
A resident of Krishna Nagar, Basti Bawa Khel, Ranjit subsequently agreed to pay him the money. In his FIR at Basti Bawa Khel police station, he said he paid Rs13 lakh to the accused in two instalments. The accused, however, after receiving the money, fled and told him that he won’t return him the money.
A case under Section 420 of the IPC was registered against Jagtar Singh.
