A city court has ordered criminal case against two women who duped a youth of Rs 2.5 lakh by promising him a job as a flight attendant with an international airlines. These women run a cabin crew placement agency in Subhash Nagar and Tagore Garden, West Delhi.

Ram Chand (20), a native from Sangrur, Punjab met Vaishali Singh and Geetika, directors Apple Solutions at their office in Subhash Nagar. Chand alleged in his complaint that the women promised him a job with Rs 1 to 2 lakh salary per month in international airlines and Rs 30,000 to 40,000 in domestic airline. He alleged that women told him that they are into business of training and recruitment of cabin crew.

"Geetika told me she has contacts with government and private airlines, and by paying them money, the job is guaranteed," said Chand in court of Metropolitan Magistrate Dharmender Rana. The court ordered registration of FIR on June 2, 2010.

Chand gave the money to women at their office in October 2008. "On pretext of recession made him run around for the job," said Gagan Preet Singh and Karan Singh counsel for Chand in court. On August 2009, Chand and his family members reached their office and demanded back his money. He was handed a postdated cheque of Rs 2.25 lakh drawn on Punjab National Bank, West Patel Nagar branch. "Twice their cheque was dishonoured due to insufficient funds. These women are playing with the careers of youth,” said Chand's counsel.

The court said the case needed police investigations, as it could be a possibility that other persons have also been cheated. The women have secured bail from the sessions court. "We are investigating the matter to see how many people have been duped and how big is this nexus" said Sharad Aggarwal, Deputy Commissioner of Police, West District.
