A man was arrested today for concocting the story of his abduction after his live-in partner put pressure on him to marry her, police said.
He had also demanded a "ransom" of Rs 20,000 from the woman, he said.
The man had introduced himself to the woman as a bank employee and had also asked her to marry him. She was unaware that Tiwari was married and had two children, the SP said.
On Monday, the woman put pressure on Tiwari for marriage, and a day later, he made a call in a female's voice and demanded a "ransom" of Rs 20,000, the SP said.
During interrogation he told the police that he had concocted his abduction to leave her. Police have sent him to jail, Tomar said.
