Promised foreign shores, man loses Rs 20 lakh

Panipat, February 19

The police have booked three persons, including a woman, allegedly for duping a Panipat farmer of Rs 20 lakh on the pretext of sending him to the US.

Victim Mohit of Khalila Majra village, in his complaint to the Karnal Range IG, said Jitender of Jundla village in Karnal lured him of sending him to the US. Jitender and Gurpreet, resident of CHD city in Karnal, had their office in Mughal Kanal in Karnal. They demanded Rs 20 lakh from him out of which he gave them Rs 10 lakh on March 26, 2019 and the next day, Jitender took him to Delhi airport from where he boarded a flight for Ecuador. Some agents of Jitender and Gurpreet kept him in Ecuador for four to five days and sent him to Columbia and later to Capurgana, where they tortured him and demanded the remaining amount from him. He called his family, who gave them Rs 10 lakh.

The agents later sent him to Mexico through illegal means, where he was arrested by the Mexican Police, sent to jail and was deported to India on January 30 last year.

After coming to India, he contacted the duo and asked them to return his money but they denied and threatened him of dire consequences. He further alleged that Jitender's wife Sarita Devi had also threatened his wife for enquiring about her husband's whereabouts.

A case has been registered against the accused. — TNS
