Woman, minor boy among 13 held for duping hundreds under pretext of providing airport jobs

Mumbai: On Thursday, a company owner and her 12 employees including a minor boy were nabbed for allegedly duping job seekers with fake hiring advertisements in Mumbai. The 32-year-old mastermind accused had been identified as Sakhina Motarwala alias Saniya.   

As per the report, the organisation was functional at the Taj Sats Air Catering Limited at International Airport where company representatives used to charge Rs 2,000 to Rs 3,000 as training and registration fees in the last six months.

According to the police, the fake job-providing company was operational for the last two years and the fraud amount could run into crores of rupees and no one got a job in the last two years. 

Police also said that the fraudster used to collect Rs 400 as a registration fee and Rs 1,600 for training. 

While commenting on the fake recruiting company, a police officer said, “Motarwala, a graduate, planned the offence after he has got experience working in the HR department of private firms," as quoted by the Times of India. 

The police officer further noted that Motarwala and her 11 staff members are in police custody till June 30. The minor boy has been detained and later on handed over to his parents.

He further noted that the fraud job providing company used to assure their new employee that they will get around Rs 26,000 once they get hired.
