BANGALORE: Seshadripuram police here took a 35-year-old man into custody following a tip-off from Chennai police, who had booked a case of cheating against him. A woman, Parveena, had filed a complaint, accusing him of marrying her, while concealing the fact that he was already married.

The suspect, Arif Khan from Mumbai, was trying to flee the country to the Middle East with another woman. He was ready to fly out of Bangalore when police intercepted him, ACP M Sholabeshwarappa of Seshadripuram sub-division said.

Parveena had filed a complaint with Chennai police, stating that Khan had advertized through a prestigious online marriage bureau, contacted her and convinced her that he was a divorcee and offered to marry her. But later, Khan disappeared to Mumbai and married another woman, Reshma, a widow with a 14-year-old son and a native of Ahmedabad. Reshma's relatives are working in the Gulf, and wanted the couple to settle there with them. Parveena had told police that Khan had taken her to Mumbai and other places before finally dumping her at Chennai.

"On hearing that Khan was trying to flee the country, Parveena approached Chennai police to prevent him. City police were alerted and caught Khan," police said.

On questioning, Khan stated that he had not married Parveena, and was only married to Reshma. City police are waiting for Chennai police to arrive and take custody of Khan.
