Yerwada police book branch in-charge of eurosia holiday club for cheating scores
The yerwada police station has registered several complaints against the management of eurosia holiday club, with the complainants alleging that the firm duped them of lakhs after promising vacation and health club memberships. Not only did eurosia fail to provide the guaranteed facilities, it also did not initiate a refund.
Bibhishan gunaware, 30, a resident of shevalewadi, lodged a complaint against the company’s pune office on thursday. Subsequently, the yerwada police registered a case of cheating under section 420 of the indian penal code (Ipc) against hemant bhujbal, branch in-charge of the firm and company director (Mr. Sarkiri signar & mr. Loli khriche). No arrest has been made so far.
Gunaware, in his complaint against eurosia, stated that in may 2016, he got in touch with the firm’s staff, who promised to give him some attractive holiday offers. Showing interest in the proposal, he visited the firm’s office at kalyani nagar, where the staff gave him a presentation on how they have entered into tie-ups with various international destinations. They even assured a stay there at cheaper rates.
“they convinced me to become a member in order to avail the offers. Trusting their word, i paid rs 63, 231 as the membership fee. However, till date, they haven’t turned the offer into reality, nor have they refunded my money, ” rued gunaware.
According to yerwada police, gunaware is not the only person who has approached them with this allegation. Two more citizens — chirdeep suryavanshi and navin barathe — have gone to the cops, claiming that the firm took rs 1.81 lakh from them, but did not give benefits despite owning membership.
Manisha tule, assistant police inspector attached to yerwada police station, who is investigating the case, told pune mirror, “so far, seven to eight people have approached us with the same complaint. According to these plaints, there are nearly 40 to 50 others who have paid the membership fee to the firm, but never received the benefits in return. They all claim that they learned about the attractive offers through advertisements in newspapers and online.”
The police say that some complainants even ended up going to the holiday destinations, but were in for a shock when they were not offered the guaranteed discounts. Tule continued, “there are quite a few people, who went to the vacation spot, but did not get the discounts. After they enquired about this with the firm, they were offered cheques, which later bounced.”
At present, the police are investigating the number of people being lured and duped by the firm. Based on this information, the cops will call the firm management for questioning. Mirror attempted contacting the firm’s officials, but no one was available for a comment.
