The Amritsar (rural) Police on Tuesday said they had arrsted two persons, including son of a head constable, for their alleged involvement in a racket to dupe gullible people by getting fake visas to Singapore stamped on their passports.

Addressing a press conference here, Amritsar (rural) SSP Manmohan Singh said, "After receiving a complaint from one Jaspal Singh that he along with 20-25 others had been duped by a travel agent in Baba Bakala, a case was registered against Balbir Singh, Rajesh Kumar and Jatinder Singh.

"When a raid was conducted, both Ranjit and Jatinder were arrested. From their office, nine fake visas of Singapore and about 75 passports of people were seized."

The SSP claimed that the accused charged between Rs 25,000 to Rs 30,000 from each of their victims but stamped fake visas on their passports.
