The problems of the absconding Gagandeep Singh, owner of Royal Education Consultants, an immigration firm, are only compounding as police registered another first information report (FIR) against him and his mother on Sunday on charges of cheating and criminal conspiracy.
Naresh Kumar, a resident of Surajganj locality here, complained to police that he had given Rs 1.5 lakh to Gagandeep in two instalments after the accused assured him of arranging a work permit for him in New Zealand. Kumar alleged that one instalment of Rs 50,000 was handed over to Gagandeep and his mother Sangeeta at their residence in Dilbag Nagar Extension here.
After preliminary investigation, a case under Sections 406 (punishment for criminal breach of trust) and 420 (cheating) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and relevant sections of the Emigration Act was registered against Gagandeep.
The first FIR against the firm’s owner was registered on December 11 and the second on December 24.
