New Delhi, February 22

A 57-year-old woman from Punjab has been arrested for her alleged involvement in a fake visa scam busted in 2009, the police said on Thursday.

The accused has been identified as Rajvinder Kaur, a native of the Moga district in Punjab. She was declared a proclaimed offender in the case which was registered on July 25, 2009. In this scam, several passengers were caught travelling to Canada allegedly on fake visas.

DCP (IGI Airport) Usha Rangnani said Rajvinder, along with her husband Sukhdev Singh and an associate identified as Ashok, used to arrange fake visas for passengers seeking to travel to Canada. For this, they would demand up to Rs 15 lakh from the passengers, she said.

Rangnani further said with the help of intelligence, a team of the IGI Airport police found out about the accused’s arrival at New Delhi railway station on Wednesday, from where she was arrested.

While being on the run, she was continuously changing her location in Punjab and neighbouring states, the police said. Rajvinder’s husband had been arrested earlier while Ashok is still absconding.
