Three held for cheating migrant workers – The Hindu

Tiruppur City Police on Friday arrested three persons on charges of cheating migrant workers by distributing fake tokens for Shramik special trains.

Police said that Rajesh (24), Raj Kumar (35) and Manish Kumar (25) cheated 60 workers by issuing counterfeit tokens to the special trains operated from Tiruppur Junction to their respective States. The accused charged ₹ 400 a token and had collected a total amount of ₹ 24,000. The police recovered nearly ₹ 15,000 from the accused following the arrest.
