The district police have booked seven travel agents on the charge of duping two residents of Rs 31.40 lakh on the pretext of sending them abroad.

Kashmira Singh of Machhiwara Sahib told the police that his son Rajan Kumar wanted to go abroad and Rajan’s wife Satvir Kaur had assured that her family could help to send him to Canada. The complainant alleged that my son gave Rs 25 lakh through Satvir to her father, mother Nirmal Kaur and one of her relatives Jatinder Singh, an NRI from Canada. Despite taking money the accused neither arranged visa for Canada nor returned the money.

Investigation officer ASI Vipan Kumar said that a case of fraud and criminal conspiracy had been registered against the four accused, including Satvir Kaur, and further probe is on.

In another case, a Doraha resident, Narinder Kumar, in his complaint to the police alleged that three travel agents took Rs 6.40 lakh to send him abroad. The accused failed to fulfil their promise and now they also refused to return the money.

The Doraha police have booked three persons namely Surjit Singh, alias Laddi, of Nakodar, Rahul and Dharamvir of Jalandhar for committing travel fraud. Investigation officer ASI Jarnail Singh said that efforts were on to nab the travel agents.
