The Ambala police department established a special investigation team (SIT), which was tasked with seizing Rs 37 lakh in cash, six expensive cars, one motorbike, and 111 passports belonging to local residents from the accused. They also took possession of the accused person’s bank accounts, which had deposits totaling 33.60 lakh rupees.

Superintendent of Police (SP) Jashandeep Singh Randhawa stated that taking cognizance of a case of immigration fraud that was registered on December 13, 2022 at the Ambala Cantonment police station led to the formation of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to bust this gang. This SIT was led by DSP Ram Kumar and consisted of CIA-I, CIA-II, and the economic offence wing (EOW).

On December 13, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) made two arrests: Gagandeep Singh alias Hunny of Top Khana Bazaar, Ambala Cantonment, and Deep Singh alias Golu of Trilokpuri, Delhi. Both men were placed under a five-day police remand after their arrests, according to the SP Ambala.

SP Jashandeep Singh, while speaking to the media, stated that “Accused Hunny and Gony are brothers who run a confectionery shop in Ambala Cantonment.” They participated in the illegal activity of sending people to other countries while simultaneously extorting large sums of money from those people.

These defendants had taken two thousand rupees from the complainant, whose name was Narender, with the intention of transporting the complainant and his family members to the United Kingdom; however, they never did so.

After conducting an investigation and searching the premises where Gagandeep alias Hunny was working, we discovered that he was engaged in activities on a large scale to send people overseas. The State Prosecutor stated that the accused primarily promised individuals that they would send them to the United Kingdom, Europe, and the United States of America (USA).

“We have also found active involvement of this gang in sending people through illegal routes,” the SP said. “In these cases, people interested in going to the United States are charged heavily and made to travel through the borders of several South American countries before finally reaching the Mexico-United States border to cross them over to the United States illegally.”

According to the Superintendent of Police, the Accused Gony is Still at Large, and Efforts are Being Made to Apprehend Him, in Addition to Other Members and Associates of This Gang Who Are Also Being Monitored by the Authorities.

The Superintendent of Police (SP) stated that while Amandeep was being held on remand, it was discovered that he was in charge of the collection and delivery of money for Hunny and Gony, even if the money had to be delivered to some agent overseas.

The SP has stated that the accused individual, Pradeep, was involved in the preparation of visa files for applicants. As part of this process, he allegedly forged various documents, such as income tax returns, in order to satisfy the requirements and finish the file as desired. It was stated by him that accused Prabhjot Singh is an accomplice of accused Amandeep, and that he too played a role in the transactions of money.

In the complaint that he filed with the police, Balraj Dhiman, a resident of Ambala and the owner of Golden Overseas Firm, stated that he had met one Gursharan alias Mohit, a resident of Ferozepur, on Facebook. Mohit lived in Ferozepur (social media app). The accused individual asserted that he was responsible for obtaining work permits and low-cost airline tickets.

Balraj stated that three of his customers, Gurwinder Singh, Ashish, and Sumit, were interested in obtaining a work permit in Australia, and he provided the reference of Gursharan, who guaranteed assistance in exchange for a fee of Rs 18 lakh.

Balraj said that he would pay the fee. After that, Gursharan demanded that they hand over their passports in addition to 6,000 US Dollars and 1,000 Australian Dollars. Cash was how Gurwinder made his payment.

The accused is said to have threatened the victims when they inquired about the status of the case, and when they demanded that their money and passport be returned, he allegedly turned off his mobile phone.

The victims conducted a search for Gursharan and discovered that he had travelled to Zirakpur. After that, they reported the incident to the police in Panchkula. Gursharan and his accomplice Harshveer Singla, a local of Kalka, were taken into custody by the police after a case was opened against them.
