Gang Member used to lay trap near the prepaid booth at international Airport, where usually passengers hire taxis for different destination in Delhi. Gang Members in Cahoot with the taxi drivers managed to trap the target before he reaches the Prepaid booth by giving them lucrative offer of less tariff taxi. During the travel, the Taxi driver used to ask the target about his last destination and about the railway tickets he got booked or otherwise. Usually, the travelers from the Gulf country are less educated and are from labor class and do not get their railway tickets booking done before they start from Gulf.

The Taxi Driver, during the travel convinced the target that he knows the company having good access in Railways and can provide him railway ticket for further journey. As a part of trap, he used to take the passengers to the office mentioned above, where all the members had their role to play, one person used to take his all details along with the copy of passport requisite for the booking of railway tickets, other persons present themselves as government officials with whom satisfaction only he can get the go ahead signal for further travel.

The Kingpin of the Gang Namely Sultan Kashmiri is absconding. All the accused persons are on two days custody remand to unearth the whole rackets and identify the co-accused from IGI Airport.

MODUS OPERANDI OF THE GANG

From the interrogation of the accused persons, the modus operandi came to light is that these accused persons target those individuals who are returning from Gulf countries. The aggrieved persons are mostly less qualified and from labor class, working in Gulf to earn bread-n-butter for their families residing in India. As soon as the target(s) reaches IGI Airport, they were approached by them and were told that they would provide them Taxi for less Charges than that of prepaid for Railway Station. During the travel from IGI to Railway Station, the taxi driver ask about the Railway ticket for further travel.

In the garb of arranging Railway Ticket, target(s) was / were taken to their office located at RK Ashram, Paharganj, Delhi. Accommodation for target(s) to stay in Delhi is arranged only by the accused persons and asked to come back next day for collection of their Railway Tickets.

It was also assured to the targets that the railway ticket will be provided in the Indian rupees only. The next day when the target reaches the office for collection of their Tickets, 4-5 persons are found to be present in that office (Sultan Kashmiri and his accomplices), victims are shown the railway ticketing on computer and asked to pay hefty money in Riyal for procuring the same. Those who pay the asked money, are provided the fake railway ticket.

Those who refuse, accused persons make them hostages, keep their passports with them and they are then robbed by beating and threating them presenting themselves as government officials of their cash (Forex etc.) and other valuable belongings. Thereafter, the accused persons call some other member of the gang and get targets to New Delhi Railway Station along with their residual luggage / belongings. At the time of sending targets to railway station, the targets are then threatened of dire consequences & snatching of their passports, if any of them has / had ever reported the matter to police authorities. These targets are allowed to board the train to their hometown just 10/15 minutes prior to train leaving the station, with the sole purpose and object that none of the target de-board the train and lodge any complaint against them. Their passports are returned to them just about 5-10 minutes prior to the departure of the train.

The gang members ie. Taxi Drivers from the IGI Airport are also being identified and efforts are being made to apprehend the Sultan Kashmiri .
