Jailed kidnapping kingpin-turned-author Om Prakash Srivastava, aka Babloo Srivastava, has finally unravelled the mystery regarding his bride-to-be.

The 27-year-old Lucknow University postgraduate is a leading city builder's daughter. The don and his girlfriend have been trying to win the approval of the latter’s family for their marriage.

Babloo has been seeing his girlfriend, working as a computer programmer with a company at Mahanagar in Lucknow, for the last one year. All set for marriage, the don is just waiting for the consent of the bride's parents.

A few days back, the don had made his marriage plans public. His confidante had then misled media persons by naming a lady journalist when enquired about the would-be-bride. This confusion has been solved with the don revealing all about the girl of his choice.

Babloo first met his girlfriend after her father got stuck in a prime property deal at Dalibagh in Lucknow. The girl's father was vying to purchase assets worth Rs 2.5 crore but was facing hurdles following disputes. After trying all possible methods to get the dispute resolved, the builder got in touch with Babloo through an acquaintance. The latter advised the builder to contact Babloo if he wanted matters to be settled promptly.

It was revealed that the builder initially searched for an appropriate link that would arrange his meeting with the don. The girl's father met Babloo at the court premises about one-and-half years back and discussed the property dispute.

The don assured the builder that he would get the matter resolved and asked for a certain amount once the deal was sone.

Since then, the builder has been in touch with Babloo on phone and has also been visiting him at court premises either in Lucknow or in Delhi. Babloo too has called on the builder at his residence, frequently. During one of these telephonic conversations, the don chanced to speak to the builder's daughter.

Gradually, the don started calling the builder's daughter more often and the two developed a liking for each other. Even after Babloo’s incarceration, the two were seen getting cozy outside prison. They dated through Babloo’s jail term. Finally, the don proposed marriage and she agreed.
