New Delhi: A former cabin crew with a
private airline, who lost his job due to overweight, was
arrested in Delhi for allegedly cheating a man by promising a job
of a pilot for his relative, police said on Tuesday.
32-year-old Sagar Bhasin was arrested from near INA

by Navneet Bhutani who claimed that he was cheated of Rs 2.3

his promise. He was arrested on a complaint filed by Bhutani,"

major racket of arranging employment for aspiring pilots.
"He (Bhasin) projected himself as having highly placed
contacts and he told Bhutani that by virtue of his past
employment he could arrange a pilot`s job for his cousin,"
Bhutani claimed that he met Bhasin a month ago at his
chemist shop in front of AIIMS and he introduced himself as a
pilot in Jet Airways.
"He further told him that he had got very good
contacts. Bhutani asked him whether he could arrange a job for
his cousin Ashish who had got commercial pilot licence from
the US," Dhaliwal said.
Around 20 days ago, Bhutani paid Rs 2.3 lakh to Bhasin
who again demanded Rs two lakh last evening.
"Suspecting foul play, Bhutani approached police and a
trap was laid at INA market from where he was arrested when he
came there to collect Rs two lakh," Dhaliwal said.
A loaded automatic pistol was also recovered
underneath the driver`s seat. During searches at his
Panchsheel Enclave residence, documents of Ashish, other
