Wednesday, 10 July 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

The Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport police has registered its first case under the new criminal law Bharatiya Nyay Sanhita since its inception on July 1 as the team arrested two agents who promised to send a 22 year old man to Canada.

“On July 1, one pax named Karminder Singh, hailing from Punjab, arrived at IGI Airport from Vietnam as a deportee. During scrutiny of his travel documents, one fake Canadian Visa was found affixed in his passport,” DCP IGI Airport Usha Rangnani said, adding that a case under section 318(4),336(3), 340(2) BNS was registered.

On interrogation, he disclosed that many people of his village had gone to Canada to earn easy money. So he also decided to go there for a better livelihood and for earning quick money. “He got the mobile number of one agent namely Jagjeet Singh, alias Jaggi, through the internet, who promised to send him to Canada via Vietnam, in lieu of 24 lakhs. The pax further disclosed that he gave 10 lakhs in cash to the agent Jaggi and 14 lakhs in cash to another agent namely Gurnam Singh on the directions of agent Jaggi,” the DCP added.

Singh deposited 14 lakhs in his bank accounts of HDFC and UCO banks and further transferred the same to agent Jagjeet Singh. “On June 28, he took flight from IGI Airport to Hanoi, Vietnam but at Hanoi Airport, his entry was restricted due to a fake Canadian Visa affixed in his passport and deported to India,” Rangnani stated.

One of the accused was arrested and on sustained interrogation, accused Gurnam Singh confessed his guilt and disclosed that he has studied up to 12th class. Another agent, 32 year old Jagjeet Singh was formally arrested in the case as he was already in Judicial Custody after being arrested in a similar case this year.

“During interrogation, he disclosed that he is a graduate and runs a company in the name of “True Talk Imagination” at Bijnour which deals in ticket booking and sending people abroad. During his work, he came in contact with some agents who used to cheat people on the pretext of sending them abroad and started working with them,” the DCP said.
