“She introduced herself as Monika Tyagi and claimed she was a marketing executive at INI Tour and Travel Pvt Ltd. We later found that this was a fake firm. On her assurance, the complainant agreed to visit Jammu and Kashmir along with his family and paid Rs 91,000 cash to Tyagi. On June 15, 2013 when Kumar visited the travel firm’s office, which he had been told was in Connaught Place, he found it did not exist,” said deputy commissioner of police (New Delhi) Madhur Verma.

“During questioning, the two men revealed that four men — Bhavesh, Mahendra Paleja, Ashiwini Singh and Harpat Singh — had hired staff to sell LTC tour packages to government employees. They had offered tours in two batches, from June 12, 2013, to June 16 and from June 16 to June 20, 2013. We found that on June 12, 2013, at least 180 passengers had departed from New Delhi airport to Srinagar, but on June 16, 2013, when the 180 passengers arrived at Srinagar airport for their return journey, they found their tickets were cancelled due to non-payment of ticket cost,” the DCP said.
