MP: The runaway bride who took eight newlyweds on an arrested ride
A 28-year-old woman who allegedly married men and then fled with jewelry and cash has been arrested along with three other people, police said on Thursday.
Urmila Ahirwar alias Renu Rajput is believed to have deceived at least eight men in this manner.
The other three arrested defendants were identified as Archana Burman alias Archana Rajput (40), Bhagchand Kori (22) and Amar Singh (50).
Their latest victim was Dashrath Patel (41), a resident of nearby Seoni district, said Inspector SS Baghel, in charge of Omti Police Station.
After his arrest, Ahirwar confessed to having cheated on seven other men in the past, Inspector Baghel said.
She would marry a man and run away with jewelry and money after a few days, he said.
She had deceived men in Jaipur, Kota and Dholpur in Rajasthan and Damoh and Sagar in Madhya Pradesh, the police official added.
Dashrath Patel’s marriage to Ahirwar was fixed by Archana who was posing as his relative. Patel gave jewelry, clothes and money to Amar Singh, who also pretended to be among his relatives, during the wedding.
According to Patel’s complaint, after the wedding ceremony in Jabalpur on Tuesday, the couple left for their village by car. Ahirwar reportedly fell at some point, saying she was not feeling well. Kori arrived at the scene on a motorbike, and she fled with him, allegedly carrying cash and jewelry that Patel had given her. Another probe is on the way.
