A 32-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly duping people on the pretext of providing domestic help through his fake placement agency, police said Friday.
Police had recently received a complaint from a man than in August 2016 he had hired a domestic help through an online placement agency and had paid Rs 25,000 as one-time commission to the agent, Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime) Rajiv Ranjan said.
The complainant said that the help came to his residence with Sanjay on August 19, 2016 and disappeared on next day. Sanjay to had switched off his mobile phone and could not be contacted, the officer said.
During investigation, police received information about the hideouts of Sahani and arrested him from Greater Noida, he said.
He later set up a similar fake placement agency 'Kashila Domestic Help Service' by using forged Aadhar and voter ID cards. The accused also got his agency registered on various online advertisement portals, Ranjan said.
After receiving online request for domestic help, Sahani used to leave the help at victim's house after a fixing monthly salary. He used to take Rs 25,000-30,000 as one-time commission. But later, the help used to flee from victim's house, Ranjan said.
Many fake Aadhar cards, voter ID cards, driving licenses, rent agreements, mostly of women, have been seized from the accused, they said.
