Solan, June 2

Young Karnal Kamal and his family were duped out of Rs 1.11 lakh by his wife, whom he married at a temple at Paonta Sahib in Sirmaur district on May 3, and his accomplices.

Bir Bahadur, DSP, Paonta Sahib said that on May 3, Kamal married Ranita at Vishwakarma Temple. Earlier, Kamal’s father received a call from Rekha, who posed as a resident of Vikas Nagar in Uttarakhand, demanding Rs 1 lakh for facilitating the marriage. Kamal’s family accepted the proposal. The two families exchanged the photos of the boy and the girl and decided to celebrate the wedding at Paonta Sahib on May 3.

Kamal’s family came to Paonta Sahib on May 3 and met the bride and six others Rekha, Sonu, Kartik Aggarwal, Ravi, Kanta and Pramila. The wedding was performed at Vishwakarma Temple, after which Rekha demanded Rs 11,000, which Kamal’s brother paid through Google Pay.

Ranita’s accomplices then expressed a desire to go to the market to buy clothes for her but got into an argument with Kamal’s family. They tried to flee but Kamal’s family members managed to catch Kanta, who assured them that the bride would return soon and she too left.

However, none of them returned. Also, they could be contacted as their cell phones were turned off while Kamal’s family waited for the bride to return. The police registered a case under Sections 420 and 120-B of the IPC and opened an investigation.
