Pilots file cheating cases against new airline FLYeasy

A group of young pilots has filed police complaints against two private firms and five of its representatives, saying they cheated them of Rs 4 crore by promising them jobs in an upcoming low-cost airline.

Several FIRs have been registered at the Cubbon Park police station against FLYeasy India, Shikha Developers, which runs the yet-to-be-launched airline, and its representatives Sanaulla Zulfiqar Ahmed Khan, Rajesh Ebrahimkutty Beevi, Mohammad Azeem Nabeel Ali Baig, Sundaram Subramanian and Felix R Thomas.

The complaints, filed by 27-year-old Gurucharan Prabhakar and others, state that the company conducted an interview three years ago and hired them by making them pay Rs 37 lakh each.

“Thinking that we will have good opportunities, we joined the company which earlier operated out of the Kempegowda International Airport but our training never took off. We paid the company by taking loans and selling our flats but the company neither gave us jobs nor returned our money,” the complainant added. They were paid stipend only for three months. Police said it was a three-year-old case and that they had sought details from the candidates and were verifying the allegations.

Meanwhile, some more victims came up with information, saying cheques issued by the company had bounced and it had changed its address from the KIA to Lavelle Road and some representatives also changed their address, resulting in the return of legal notices sent to them, the police said, quoting the complainants
