Tribune News Service

Moga, October 11

The Moga police have booked a woman travel agent and her associate on the charge of duping a local family of Rs 80-lakh on the pretext of arranging a study visa for Canada, the police confirmed here on Friday.

The accused has been identified as Amandeep Kaur of Chak Bhai Ka village of Jagraon police district and her associate Kuldeep Singh of Bheekhampur, UP.

A case under Sections 420, 406 and 120B of the IPC has been registered against them at the Nihalsinghwala police station. However, no arrests have been made so far.

As per the details available, Sandeep Kaur, wife of Kulwinder Singh of Nihalsinghwala, Moga, complained to the SSP that she wanted to send her daughter Jaskiran Kaur to Canada.

While pursuing a beautician course at Chandigarh, Jaskiran met another girl in the parlour who introduced her to Amandeep claiming that she was a travel agent. After initial meetings, she took the girl and her parents into confidence. She arranged a travel visa of Indonesia after taking Rs 17 lakh from them.

In Indonesia, Jaskiran met two persons who took her to their private apartment and started demanding more money. Jaskiran’s parents transferred Rs 63 lakh in various accounts.

However even after getting Rs 80 lakh, the travel agents failed to arrange a Canadian visa for Jaskiran who was forced to overstay in Indonesia for a few weeks until the local authorities took her into custody and deported her back to India. The girl’s family told the police that they had also received threats to their lives from the accused travel agents.
