Travel agent booked for issuing fake visa

Ludhiana, July 20

A travel agent has been booked for issuing a fake visitor visa of Australia to a resident of Birak village near Jagraon. The accused has been identified as Parvinder Singh, a native of Bathinda presently residing in Malaysia.

Complainant Amanpreet Singh told the police that recently, when he went to Malaysia, he met the accused who claimed that he could easily arrange a visa for Australia.

“Parvinder asked for Rs 3.5 lakh for the visa. I gave Rs 1 lakh in first instalment and the remaining amount was given later,” Amanpreet said.

Months after taking the money, Parvinder handed over a fake visitor visa to him. Now, when asked to return the money, he refused. A case has been registered. — TNS
