Srinagar, Oct 29: With the state police failing to nab the absconding tour operator of M/S Al-Balaagh Tours and Travels, who allegedly duped over 120 Hajj aspirants earlier this month, the victims have sought immediate transfer of case. The aspirants threatened to stage roadside protests should the government fail to “do the needful.”
A delegation of the victims told Greater Kashmir that the case be handed over to the police official who managed getting arrested Hajeej India Pvt Ltd owner Fabian Wahib Gilkar who last year duped some Hajjis under similar circumstances.
“Fabian was nabbed from Rajasthan. This tout could also be absconding in a similar way, but the concerned police officials are totally clueless,” the Hajj aspirants said.
They appealed the Director General of Police, Inspector General of Police SM Sahai and the MOS Home Nasir Aslam Wani to get the case transferred to the police official investigating the Hajeej fraud.
“Our faith has been shattered and police till now is acting mute,” the victims complained adding that the case be transferred at an earliest.
The aspiring pilgrims have been accusing the Al Balaagh representatives, particularly its owner Noor Hussain Khan of having cheated them.
Last year, another private tour operator Hajeej India duped a number of Hajj aspirants, leading to registration of case against its owner and his subsequent arrest. A court later granted interim bail to the accused after he agreed to deposit an amount of Rs 2 crores in the account of Sessions Court. The Hajeej India had swindled staggering Rs 10 crore by allegedly duping more than 500 aspiring Hajj aspirants.
