MUMBAI: The Mahim police arrested two travel agents for siphoning of Rs17.15 lakhs from a job aspirant promising to get him a work permit visa for Canada. Victim Jaffer Usman (45) went to Imran Consultancy in Mahim to get the visa processing done. He was jobless for two years after he returned back to Mumbai from Canada after working there seven years.

The accused—Ashraf Balolia (52) and Nasir Shaikh (26)—promised Usman to get his work done and collected the money on different dates in between February and April. However, Usman learnt about the fraud when he landed in Delhi to collect his visa from a person named Rehman.

On learning being duped, Usman returned back from Delhi and lodged a complaint and got the duo arrested on June 25. Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone V) Dhananjay Kulkarni confirmed TOI about the incident. A Mahim police officer said Usman learnt about the fake visa immediately after he went through the visa stamped.

Usman has already worked in Canada for seven years. "He was knowing the formalities to complete for visa processing and also has got visa stamped on his passport required for Canada. On seeing the fake visa he immediately realized about the fraud," said the officer.

The accused has been booked under several sections of the Indian Penal Code for cheating and forgery. They are in police custody till July 2. Meanwhile cops are hunting for the Delhi-based Rehman who have taken Rs7.8 lakhs from the two arrested for visa processing work.

Investigators are probing whether the accused are involved in similar fraud in the past.
