A Delhi University professor, who was transferred to Assam last month, lost all his belongings, albeit temporarily, after he engaged a fake cargo company to move his household items.
Police said Mohammad Asif engaged a company whose “director” assured him they could move his belongings from Dwarka to Assam Rs 11,000. Asif had found the company on Justdial.
But after a month of waiting, and realising that the company’s phone had been switched off, Asif lodged a complaint at Dwarka north police station on November 12.
Police called Justdial and obtained numbers of cargo companies, and also started tracking the IMEI number of the phone from the which the man posing as the “director” had called.
Police said they went through the list of companies, and found that the number of one of them was the same as the one used by the “director”.

Police also tracked the phone with the IMEI number.
“The accused, Gajender Singh, never met Asif. He hired a driver and assured him Rs 2,000 to deliver goods from Dwarka to Noida. Singh told the driver that Asif is his relative. He did not want to come face-to-face with Asif, and the driver had no idea he was an front man,” a police officer said.
Police said Singh, 29, earlier worked as an insurance agent in Gurgaon. He had been in the “cargo business” for the last four years. Police said that apart from Asif’s belongings, items from other “customers” were also recovered.
“In the past, he has stolen eight items from other people. Two godowns have come under scanner,” said a police officer.
