Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Ayodhya Nagar police station staff have registered a case of fraud against the owner of a travel agency based in Delhi for duping a couple of Rs 16 lakh on pretext of taking them on a tour to Dubai, the police said on Monday.
Ayodhya Nagar police station house officer Neelesh Awasthi said that the complainant Monika Ahuja (30), a resident of Ayodhya Nagar, had planned a trip to Dubai with her husband Om Prakash Ahuja. They contacted a travel agency based in Delhi for the purpose.
The agency owner Jugal Kishore Sharma promised to provide amenities to the couple during their visit to Dubai. He demanded Rs 16 lakh from the couple for the trip. The couple paid the amount to Sharma and left for Dubai in November 2022.
