CB files case against two fraudsters
Srinagar, Nov 19: Crime Branch Kashmir has registered a case against two persons for providing a fake appointment letter and visa to a job-seeker in lieu of money.
In a statement, Crime Branch said that they received an application from one Naseer Ahmed Qazi of Rathpora Eidgah Srinagar saying that he paid Rs six lakh to Fayaz Ahmed Dar and Chandan Singh Rajput of Chandan Villa, New Shimla, Phase 3, Near BSC Sector-3, Plot NO.45 who posed as job providers in foreign countries.
“They provided job letter and other related documents which on verification turned to be fake and forged, thereby deceived the applicant and grabbed his hard earned money,” the statement said.
Subsequently, it said, a preliminary enquiry into the matter was initiated at Crime Branch, which revealed that the suspect Fayaz Ahmed Dar assured the applicant that he will arrange job for him in Canada.
“The applicant was induced to pay an amount of Rs 25000 as processing fee which he deposited in account maintained and operated in the name of Chandan Singh Rajput of Chandan Villa, New Shimla, Phase 3, Near BSC Sector-3 at SBI Branch Shimla (HP). After that the applicant deposited Rs 50,000, 25000 and 20,000 in the account number maintained and operated in the name of Fayaz Ahmed Dar in J&K Bank Branch Narbal Budgam, and later the complainant again deposited Rs 2.0 lakh, 3.5 lakh, and Rs 20,000 in A/C NO. 2016796291 of suspect Chandan Singh,” it said.
The statement said the applicant was provided visa, identity card, employment agreement through mail and courier.
“The visa document provided to complainant was verified from Canadian Embassy, but it was reported that the said visa is not genuine. The accused thereby cheated the applicant and grabbed his hard earned money in a fraudulent and dishonest manner,” it added.
