A gang of Nepalis are engaged in cheating,burglary, forgery and other heinous crimes in Delhi. The modus operandi of this gang is very simple. The gang has camoflaged a PLACEMENT AGENCY NAMELY CHOUDHARY PLACEMENT AGENCY (REGD) Nizzadummin New Delhi offering services of house maids and other class four employees. To woo its clients, it advertise in the leading newspaper Hindustan Times on each Saturday . People requiring housemaid contact the agency and one choudhary picks up the NO and speaks to you. After negotiating his commission and monthly salary of the maid Choudhary will tell you to pay Rs six thousand commission and Rs.3000 salary of maid in advance as and when the maid will be delivered at your residence alongwith one attendant. After two days of the inquiry, choudhary will ring u up that maids have arrived and he is sending a maid from Jharkhand alongwith one male attendant who should be paid Rs. nine thousand . The attendant reports at your residence alongwith the maid and after initial interaction etc. the attendant collects the money and leave the premises leaving behind the maid. Maid makes an assessment of the house and finding suitable opportunity vanishes with the valuables at the earliest. If she finds staying back risky then she slips out the same day alongwith the attendant who would be waiting for her on a two wheeler outside nearby. This is a serious crime and who knows they may be indulging in murder and dacoity. I have all the documents and papers, photograph, recorded conversation of these culprits and also copy of the FIR registered with the Police and acknowledgement received from the police. To caution the general public, and to keep them on their guard, in the general public interest, i request you to make a story on real events as reported and telecast it at your earliest. I am a senior govt.of India officer and after vrs I am a senior officer with DLF. I want to help you by giving this interesting piece of story.

Watching coverage and debate on television channels since 16th this month, when ANNA HAZARE started his protest against Sarkari Lokpal Bill, it has been noticed that some media sections are sensitizing the issue first for their vested TRP interests then twisting it again now in reverse direction. Such unwarranted and duplicitous twists are surprising and create doubts in mind of viewers. The sudden change of tone is happening almost in all channels at same time, which shows that external forces control the tone. The credibility of media will also on stake like politicians if not taken care about it. It is fact that tele-media is playing the vital role to provide the information but same is being misused also for ill interests. Many times, it has been proved that politicians and media personalities were found together in corruption cases. We request to all news channels media to be balanced and honest in their views and news business to maintain the credibility within society and nation for longer time, instead of misusing their importance.
