The International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) has issued ‘blue corner notice’ against a Nigerian national in connection with duping of a city-based travel firm, the police said Saturday.
Deputy Inspector General of Police Harinarayanchari Mishra said in a press release that Interpol issued a blue corner notice against Sikheru Balogan, resident of Lagos, Nigeria, on March 15 on police’s request.
Blue corner notice is issued if investigating authorities from another country need to locate, identify or obtain information about a person.
A 45-year-old Nigerian woman and her daughter had been arrested in this case in January. They were part of a gang which allegedly cheated a city-based travel firm of over Rs one crore by not paying for 82 air tickets.
Sikheru was suspected to be part of the same gang, police said today.
Moinat Adnik Balogan and her daughter Saidas Folake Balogan (20) were arrested in Delhi on January 24.
They had travelled from Lagos to Delhi, and were members of a gang which duped Indore-based Jose Travels of Rs 1.08 crore by booking 82 air tickets.
The gang members allegedly promised to pay a premium on tickets, but never paid.
