A Visa application fraud detected by the US Embassy in New Delhi on March 26 is a case in point. The matter relates to two individuals – Sandeep Singh Kamo and Rajpreet Kaur Kamo. According to available information, both of them had applied for non-immigrant visa. Sandeep (33), presented Indian passport number L8340966 as proof of identity and Rajpreet (32), presented Indian passport number L8560095 as proof of identity. They gave their address as House No. 194D Urban Estate, PH-1, Focal Point, Dhandari Kalan, Ludhiana in Punjab.

An FIR has been registered by the Chanakyapuri Police Station on a complaint of visa application fraud by the US Embassy in New Delhi. According to information provided by Delhi Police, Sandeep had submitted a visa application claiming that he was the owner of City Finance, located at Shop No. 43 at Model Town in Ludhiana. Rajpreet submitted a visa application stating that she was a teacher at Bhartiya Vidya Mandir, located at Phase III, Dugri in Ludhiana.

Sandeep also submitted a Yes Bank letter in his name and in the name of City Finance, besides his Income Tax Returns for 2013-2014 and 2014-2015. He also attached a City Finance letterhead and a Business Card in his name. A Bhartiya Vidya Mandir Employment letter was given to establish Rajpreet Kaur’s employment.

During the visa interview, Sandeep told Embassy officials that he neither owned nor worked at City Finance. Rajpreet also admitted that she did not work at Bhartiya Vidya Mandir. Both of them also revealed that the documents provided by them in support of their application were fraudulent. According to them, the documents had been prepared and given to them by their agent – Dharminder from Khanna. They had paid Dharminder Rs 30,000 in advance and had agreed to pay additional Rs. 200,000 once the visa was approved.

The police are treating this as a case of conspiracy involving Sandeep and Rajpreet, the agent and unknown persons and have registered an FIR under various sections of IPC.
