New Delhi: Delhi Police on Tuesday claimed to have smashed a fake placement agency involved in duping more than 100 people in the name of providing domestic helps, nannies and nurses with the arrest of two men.

The gang had changed their contact numbers more than 50 times in the past two months to avoid arrest, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) H G S Dhaliwal said.

The arrested have been identified as Salim Turkey (35) and Bahuran Kumar (25). They were caught from Devli and Aya Nagar area in the past three days following a series of raids.

The arrests came following investigations into a complaint filed by Jagdish Narayan, a retired Central government official, who claimed that he was cheated by two persons who took Rs 10,000 from him promising to provide a maid-servant.

Narayan said he approached Jay Placement Service in Lajpat Nagar after seeing a newspaper advertisement.

"They were promised a domestic maid for of Rs 10,000 as registration charges and salary of Rs 1,800 per month. Instead of the complainant visiting their office, the duo offered to provide service at their home," Dhaliwal said.

However, the promised maid did not turn up and Narayan approached police. So far, by adopting the same modus-operandi they have duped more than 100 people in and around the National Capital Region, he said.

Many pamphlets and bogus receipt books and advertisement materials used by the duo have been recovered from their possession.
