Much-married conman in net
New Delhi: A 38-year-old software engineer was arrested almost two years after conning a woman into marrying him. The victim, a resident of Dwarka, complained to police that the man had duped her of around Rs 14 lakh. A month into their marriage, she discovered that he was married with kids.
The accused, Atul Kumar Tomar, has been booked under IPC sections of rape and cheating, DCP (Dwarka) Shibesh Singh said.
Investigating officers found that Tomar had come in contact with the woman on a matrimonial website in May 2016. He introduced himself as a software engineer working with an MNC in Gurgaon earning Rs 30 lakh per annum. The families soon met and the couple got married two months later.
When the woman found photos of his wife and kids on his laptop, he ran away. She approached police after searching for him for months on her own. Tomar had mentioned that he was planning to start a firm with the name Buck Eye Software Limited. When cops searched on the internet, they found the company’s website with Tomar on the board of directors.
A police team visited the bank in which the company had an account and got details about Tomar through his PAN card. He was arrested after a raid at his house in Noida.
In another incident, a senior executive at FICCI was conned of Rs 10 lakh by a man who had contacted her through a matrimonial website. He even took her passport with him. The fraudster introduced himself as a businessman from Canada with a consultancy firm in New Delhi.
