The Mohali police has no clue to the owner of Creative Placement Consultants in Phase 7 and World Track Education Consultants in Phase 10 which shut shop more than a year ago after duping several people by offering jobs abroad, and whose victims are still turning up with complaints of cheating and fraud.
The latest case against Satpal, the owner of both firms, was registered by the phase 11 police station last Monday on the complaint of a Bathinda resident. In all, more than a hundred cases of cheating have been lodged against him. The money he has swindled reportedly runs into several crores.
The police know very little about the man and his accomplice Ruby Sharma, both of whom have been declared proclaimed absconders in several cases. Investigating Officer Bakhshish Singh of Mataur police station said he did not even know the extent of the racket because he was posted recently.
SP Swarndeep Singh said, “I’m not aware of the case, but I’ll look into it.”
According to the police, Satpal set up his agencies in 2011 and published advertisements in newspapers, offering to send people abroad for jobs. People from all over the state started registering themselves. They received letters offering jobs on the letterhead of a fake company in Winnipeg, Canada, asking them to submit their details to Satpal’s agencies in Mohali.

The two agencies then collected a “refundable” amount, ranging from Rs 1 lakh to Rs 2.5 lakh, from those who accepted the offer. In February last year, both agencies shut their offices and Satpal disappeared.
Soon, complaints started trickling in. Cases were registered against Satpal and Ruby Sharma. After verification, the Economic Offences Wing referred the cases to Mataur and phase 11 police stations. Mataur SHO N P S Lehal said they tried to trace the accused but got no headway. Officials said investigation had suffered because of frequent transfers of officers in the two police stations.
