The police have arrested three persons and booked eight others for fraud, cheating, criminal breach of trust and criminal conspiracy.

The three persons identified as Barjinder Kaur of Bholewal Kadian, Kishan Chand of Baldev Nagar in Morinda and Bharti Rani, a resident of Nidhan Singh Nagar, were arrested and booked under Sections 420, 465, 466, 467, 468, 471, 474 and 120-B of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for submission of forged and fabricated documents in the court of Judicial Magistrate (First Class) here to secure bail in a criminal case. The complaint to this effect was lodged with the police by the court of the Judicial Magistrate.

The city police have booked four persons, Parmod Kumar, Badari Vishvakarma, Mithan Kumaar Mandal and Waseem Khan, under Sections 420, 467, 468, 471 and 120-B, IPC, on the complaint of Rajesh Kumar of Lajpat Nagar. The complainant said he had contacted the suspects on a mobile phone number (78469-53382) for purchase of an Honda Active scooter (PB 70E 4159) through the OLX website.

“On the advice of the suspects, I paid Rs 29,100 through bank transfer in their account. However, they failed to deliver the scooter or return the money,” the complainant alleged.

In a case involving an immigration fraud, the police have registered a case under various sections of the IPC against Mandeep Kaur, her brother Narinder Singh and sister Amandeep Kaur, all residents of Dehleej Khurd in Sangrur district, for cheating Gurmeet Singh of Rurka Kalan. It has been alleged by the complainant that the trio promised to send his son abroad after getting his IELTS examination cleared. In the process, the prime suspect, Mandeep Kaur, got married to the son of the complainant and got Rs 8,78,000 transferred to her bank account on different dates.

“My son was never sent abroad and the suspects also refused to refund the money paid for the purpose,” added the complainant.

In another case of fraud, the police have booked Gurshan Singh of Gill village under Sections 406, IPC, for fraudulently making a withdrawal of Rs 2 crore from the bank account of his mother Gurvinderjit Singh, a resident of the Gurdev Nagar locality, after the death of his father. The police said further investigation was on in the matter.
