6 people arrested for fooling people into promising jobs at Delhi airport: police
Six people, including five women, have been arrested for allegedly duping people under the pretext of providing jobs in the baggage and ticketing wings of Indira Gandhi International Airport, police said on Friday.
The defendants were identified as Prakash Rai (24), Aarti (21), Neetu (22), Aarti (20), Pooja Kumari (20) and Poonam (22), they said.
Police said a complainant alleged that he saw an advertisement on social media about the placement and called the number listed.
On December 1, he received a call regarding the submission of documents. He later received a call again telling him that his documents were checked and he was asked to deposit Rs 2,550 as a processing fee for the job, a senior police officer said.
Subsequently, the victim was again asked to pay Rs 8,500 and Rs 10,000. The accused asked him to come to gate number 2 of IGI airport to meet a certain Sameer Sharma. When the complainant arrived at the airport, no one by that name was found there, police said.
Police then raided Jawalaheri and Paschim Vihar, and arrested the six defendants, senior (northwest) police official Usha Rangnani said.
Seven cell phones, four data registers and an ATM card were recovered in their possession, she added.
