The city police have booked a man for allegedly duping two Delhi-based sisters of Rs 6 lakh on the pretext of sending them to the US on a modelling assignment.

The two girls approached him after reading an advertisement, the police said. He claimed to be an Indian agent for a US-based modelling agency.

“They were cheated by a man who lives in DLF (Phase 2) in Gurgaon. The accused took Rs 1.97 lakh from them and promised to get them a modelling assignment in the US. Later, he took another Rs 4 lakh. When the girls did not receive any positive reply from him, they realised they have been duped. The victims’ father filed a complaint on Friday night,” said investigation officer Kuldeep Kishor.

The case was investigated by the economic offences wing. A case under Section 420 and 406 has been registered at the DLF Phase 2 police station.

The police suspect other girls in Delhi-NCR were also duped.
