A graduate from Delhi University with a commercial pilot license has been arrested by the Special Cell. He was found to be associated with an immigration fraud. This racket was spread across Delhi, Haryana and Punjab.
The accused, Vipin Sharma, 34, has fooled many people into paying him money which led to an accumulation of Rs. 3 crores from people belonging to the above states. In the last 10 years, about 27 cases have been registered against him.
This time, Sharma has been caught as per the Maharashtra Control of Organized Crime Act. He had arrested previously also on many charges but had skipped many bails. The police have also found Rs. 7.94 lacks of cash, 63 passports with visa stamps and documents pertaining to 11 bank accounts. These bank accounts have now been frozen.
The entire gang was operating similar to that of a crime mob. All the gang members were based in the three states where in they promised to send all their clients overseas. Once they were successful in duping people and collected money from them, they used to flee.
Vipin and his wife were arrested on similar charges in New Delhi but they absconded after applying for a bail. The court has pronounced Vipin as a Proclaimed Offender in 20 cases where as his brother has been charged with 4 cases and his brother-in-law with 6 cases.
The above instance is a clear example for all those planning to immigrate. It is highly important to do a thorough background check of any consultant before you trust him with all your money. Make sure that your consultant is a registered and an experienced one.
