Batala SSP Tulsi Ram on Saturday summoned Harpreet Kaur of Kala Goraya village under Ghumman Kala police station in Gurdaspur district to his office and assured her of suitable action against the persons she accused of duping her of money.
The Hindustan Times had carried a new item 'UK-based couple accused of duping kin of Rs 7.16 lakh' on Saturday, following which police official was sent to Kaur's house to ask her to meet the SSP on the issue.
The SSP gave her a patient hearing and asked her to come again on Monday along with all documents and proofs in support of her claim that her UK-based relatives Joginder Kaur and her husband Surinderjeet Singh had managed a fake visa for her for Rs 7.16 lakh, of which she paid 4,672 pounds to them in UK on January 26, 2012, and another Rs 3.36 lakh to their contact Dr Gurdev Singh Randhawa in Batala on February 16, 2012.
Kaur had claimed that a visa was arranged for her by the accused couple on the basis of fake documents. When she went to the Rajasansi international airport in Amritsar on February 19, 2012, to take a flight to the United Kingdom, she was told by airport authorities that she had a fake visa. SSP Tulsi Ram said that he would get an FIR registred against the guilty.
