One held for duping girls in nursing job racket

       Jagraon: Punjab Police have nabbed Amarjeet Singh, the man who took 24 girls from Ludhiana to Goa with promises of employing them in the Military Nursing Service (MNS) as officers. Singh, who posed as an army lieutenant, is said to have extracted money from the girls for the jobs. He took them to Goa and locked them inside a hotel room. Amarjeet, however, denies that he wanted to sell the girls. "I and my accomplice had taken 24 girls to Goa and offered them jobs of nurses in the Army. This is correct that a total of rupees 75,000 was taken from them for jobs. But it is wrong that I wanted to sell them," he said. Jagraon Senior Superintendent of Police R K Jaiswal said police are interrogating Amarjeet about his intentions. His accomplice in the case is yet to be traced. Around 16 girls were rescued from a hotel in Goa by their parents with the help of Lok Bhalai Party last month. Most of these girls belonged to the villages of Kamalpura and Madheke in Ludhiana and Moga Districts respectively. Though the girls said they were not harmed physically, they doubted Amarjeet's intentions. The police have registered a case in under Sections 406, 419, 423, 346, 247 and 506 IPC against Singh.
