- 3 persons including 2 women arrested.
A team of officers of Crime Branch led by Inspr. Rajesh Sharma and consisting of SI Sunil Kumar, SI Shiv Darshan, ASI Harcharan Singh, HC Kanwar Pal, HC Jai Singh, Ct. Suresh, Ct. Atul Suhag and Ct. Neeraj under the supervision of Addl. DCP/Crime Dr. Joy Tirkey have busted a racket of Maid Service fraud. 3 persons including 2 women have been arrested.
A complaint was received from a resident of Ashok Vihar, Delhi that a Maid Service Agency by the name of Bulbuli Maid Service having its address at H-Block, H-95, Shiv Mandir, Sunder Vihar, New Delhi have cheated him on pretext of providing a maid. The Maid Service Agency took the commission of Rs. 18,000/- and the salary of the maid was fixed for Rs.2500/-. But the maid only worked with them for a day and then vanished on the pretext of getting milk. The address given was found to be fake and there was no response on the mobile phone numbers provided to them by the Maid Service Agency.
A trap was laid and three persons involved in the Maid Service Racket were apprehended from Rithala Metro Station. They were identified as i) Vasudev @ Raja @ Raju (aged 21 years) s/o Hira Lal r/o Village Dhekeja Juli, PS Panari, Distt. Udalguri, Assam, ii) Beena @ Malti (aged 23 years) w/o Vasudev r/o Village Dhekeja Juli, PS Panari, Distt. Udalguri, Assam and iii) Moni @ Manju @ Nisha (aged 21 years) w/o Joynal r/o Village Telia Para, PS Panari, Distt. Udalguri, Assam.
All the accused persons were subjected to intensive interrogation. The king pin of the racket was found to be Vasudev @ Raja @ Raju. He was helped by his wife Beena @ Malti and another lady by the name of Moni @ Manju @ Nisha. All the three hail from Assam. Vasudev @ Raja @ Raju came to Delhi about 4 years ago and worked in a number of Maid Placement Agency in Shakur Pur, Delhi. He met Beena @ Malti about a year ago and married her. Beena @ Malti came to Delhi five years ago and worked as a house maid till she got married. Moni @ Manju @ Nisha also joined the racket.
The racketeers have been involved in racketeering for the past one year. Their modus operandi was that initially they distributed pamphlets in the residential areas that they were a Maid Placement Agency. The address of their office printed on the pamphlets was fake and mobile phone numbers had also been taken on fake identities. The pamphlet contained their mobile phone numbers and when the prospective employers contacted them, they informed that Rs.10,000/- to 25,000/- would have to be paid by the Employer as commission for providing a maid. In order to convince the employer that they were providing genuine maids they also informed that the maid would have to be paid a monthly salary of Rs. 2500/- (for fully trained maid) or Rs.1500/- (for semi trained). Either Beena @ Malti or Moni @ Manju @ Nisha would be projected as the maid. After taking the commission amount one of the girls joined as a maid in the house hold but used to vanish on next morning on some pretext or other. Till date they have cheated more then 50 prospective employers and have fraudulently earned Rs. 6 to 7 Lacs.
Further investigation is in progress.
