The Task Force police on Sunday raided a travel consultancy and arrested its owner for being involved in preparing fake visas for travel to Dubai and Oman. Cops seized 36 passports, fake visas, sponsor declarations and one printer from him. Another accused in the case is still at large.

On a tip off, the Task Force sleuths apprehended T Subbi Reddy (55), a resident of Mettuguda, who was running an unauthorised travel consultancy business.

Reddy colluded with his younger brother’s son Nagi Reddy, an expert in adobe photoshop, and prepared fake tourist visas, additional deputy commissioner of police, Task Force, P Rameshaiah said. 

Subbi Reddy collected original passports and other information from the needy customers, especially women, by luring and promising them to arrange air tickets on visit/tourist visas and fabricated genuine employment visas as visit/tourist visas. “He collected `15,000 to `20,000 for preparing fake tourist visas,” police said.

Every month he used to send about 30 to 40 clients to the foreign countries this manner. The arrested, along with the seized material, were handed over to Chilakalguda police for further action.
