Man held for making fake marriage profile, cheating woman

Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

A 37-year-old man, who cheated a woman by marrying her and taking lakhs of rupees from her after claiming to be a software professional was arrested today, Cyberabad police said.

Prashanth Paramkusham the victim through a matrimonial site, where he had falsely claimed in his profile that he was a software professional.



He claimed that he had done his engineering from NIT and later did MBA from and had worked for leading Indian and foreign IT firms and visited US many times, they said.

He also claimed that he was now into film production and earned around Rs 30-40 lakh annually.

The woman, who was working abroad, was impressed by his profile and decided to marry him.

Prashanth allegedly asked the girl to loan him some money for marriage expenses and to buy jewellery, saying he could not encash his fixed deposits immediately, police said.

She gave him Rs 4 lakh. The marriage took place on March 20 at Miyapur.

"After the marriage, she left for US on March 25 due to her job requirement. He promised that he would obtain visa and follow her to the US. But later he stated he could not get visa," a police official said.

The accused again asked her for Rs 20 to 30 lakh saying that he had developed a serious health problem and was hospitalised, he said.

The victim's family inquired and realised that he was lying. They also found out that the information given by him regarding his education among others, was false and he may have cheated other women too in this way.

The victim's mother lodged a police complaint earlier this month following which Prashanth was arrested today. Further probe is on.
