Kochi cops to beef up checks on travel firms, education consultants | Kochi News

KOCHI: Kochi city The police will intensify checks at travel agencies, education and personnel consultants. Deputy Commissioner S.Sasidharan said they have received complaints of financial fraud against some agencies. The decision was made in the wake of a female employee named Surja27, from a travel agency on Ravipuram stabbed in the neck by a man named Jolly James47, on Tuesday.
“Even before the incident, we collected the data of such bureaus and consultancies at the police station level and verified their credentials. There are a large number of fraud cases involving such companies,” said Sasidharan.
Meanwhile, police said James planned to attack the business owner and they recovered a new knife, which he even bought for that purpose, from the crime scene.
The accused claims to have paid the agency Rs 1.50 lakh for a Lithuanian visa but was unsuccessful due to the pandemic restriction. He claimed that the agency only refunded Rs 1 lakh and demanded the repayment of the remaining Rs 50,000. However, the agency refuted the claims.
“The allegations of both the defendant and the owner will need to be verified. After further investigation, the custody of the defendant will be sought,” said a source.
Meanwhile, the injured woman remains admitted to a private hospital with serious injuries to her throat.
