Bollywood films can be made on real life events but this duping incident sounds like it was based on a movie. A woman has managed to tie the knot with eight senior citizens in the last ten years and conned each one of them and robbed them of their money and jewellery.
According to a Times of India report, the woman’s fraud came to light when she married a construction contractor from UP’s Ghaziabad.
Loneliness wasn’t working out well for Jugal Kishore after the passing of his wife last year and his son moved out to a separate house. Fed up with being on his own, Kishore came across an advertisement by Delhi-based matrimonial agency – Khanna Vivah Kendra – in a newspaper. The ad mentioned that the agency can find potential matches for senior citizens and divorcees.
Kishore approached the marriage bureau and the owner of the agency, Manju Khanna, made him meet Monica Malik and told him she would be “the perfect bride for him.” Monica was said to be a divorcee and after a few weeks of courtship, the duo got married in August 2019.
The married couple started living in Kishore’s Kavi Nagar residence, but just after two months of ‘marital bliss’, all of a sudden one day Monica was nowhere to be found and neither was the jewellery and cash in the house.
Monica had allegedly fled with valuables worth lakhs. Kishore told TOI, “On October 26, 2019, Monica fled with valuables worth Rs 15 lakh.”
Kishore then approached the matrimonial agency but its owner threatened to lodge a false case against him and instead, demanded money. This was followed by Kishore finding out about Monica’s previous husband who was duped in a similar manner.
A police complaint was lodged against Monica and the cops found out that in the past decade, Monica had duped eight senior citizens using the same modus operandi. All her marriages were fixed by the same agency – Khanna Vivah Kendra.
