New Delhi: With the arrest of one person,
police on Thursday claimed to have busted an overseas manpower
racket duping several people on the pretext of giving them
employment in Singapore and other countries and seized forged
documents from him.
Sujeet Kumar Biswas (34), hailing from West Bengal and
currently living in Laxmi Nagar in the national capital, was
arrested after one Ajay Singh complained to the police that he
had been cheated by Biswas.
Singh alleged that he and five of his friends paid Rs 2
lakh each, other than the ticket and miscellaneous expenses,
to Biswas after he gave an advertisement in English newspapers
regarding `overseas vacancies` for hotel jobs and computer
operators in Singapore.
He even sent two persons namely Vijay Raj Bhatt and
Prakash Chand to Singapore but both were deported to India
when they were found ineligible for employment, by Immigration
authorities of Singapore.
"Their documents were also found forged and incomplete.
Later, Biswas switched off his phones, blocked e-mail address,
closed his offices and disappeared," police said.
Police conducted the investigation on the basis of
e-mail address and cell phone numbers given by the accused
"The investigation revealed that he was having three
offices related to Overseas Job Consultancy at Arjun Nagar,
Main Shivalik Road and Laxmi Nagar. But he closed all his
offices once he collected money and the victims deported were
back from Singapore," police said.
Biswas initially worked for a few good companies dealing
in leather business and also owned a fabrication unit in
Tuglakabad but failed to sustain good life.
"He went to Singapore and met with two persons namely
Ram Tilesmin and Manoj Kr. Jena dealing in Kabooterbaazi
particularly targeting gullible persons hailing from remote
hill areas and Nepal aspiring to work in hotel industries in
foreign countries," they said.
In the process, he collected details of 156 aspirants
for employment and sent the details of all these persons to
his counterparts working in Singapore so that relevant
documents could be prepared and they could further be cheated.
"He did not collect any licence to deal in manpower
business from any of the offices/departments in India and did
all these things clandestinely using different names and
different offices in posh localities," they said.
