According to the police, Zulfikar and his accomplice had promised several people, primarily hailing from Thiruvananthapuram and Kollam districts, visas before taking cash in lakhs from them. The visa aspirants were then taken to Mumbai and Delhi on the pretext of completing visa formalities before being sent back home after two to three months. One such person, Arun of Kottarakara had lost Rs.5.5 lakh before realising that he was being duped, and lodged a complaint with the Kadinamkulam police. Zulfikar went absconding on hearing about the complaint and was arrested from near the Madanvila school late on Monday.
