One of the arrested men is a Jordanian and it is alleged that both men were involved in an international human trafficking racket. Forty-nine year old Husaain Samadi and fifty-three year old Paramjeet Singh Sandhu are the two accused.
According to crime branch ACP Neeraj Thakur, the accused were working in collectively from 2007 and were involved in sending over three-hundred people illegally to Canada, UK and the US with the help of fake documents. Police also disclosed that Samadi was also involved in running a ‘school’ in Delhi that was deliberately designed to teach immigrants the way to face interviews in foreign countries.
Udaiveer Singh Rathi, chief investigating officer, said that the accused were arrested by police on the 26th of August in South Delhi. He said that the police recovered forty-nine passports along with some fake visa stickers for Canada from the two accused.
An investigator Ved Prakash said that the accused charged between Rs. five lakhs to fifteen lakhs from the ‘customers’. Prakash explained that Rs. Five to seven lakhs were charged by the accused for making fake documents for people willing to enter East Europe or Australia, and for those who wanted to relocate in the US, UK or Canada, they charged somewhere between Rs. Ten to fifteen lakhs.
As told by Thakur, Hussain came to India from Jordan in 1980 on student visa and then stayed in the country without proper documents.
