A woman was on Monday arrested for allegedly facilitating marriage of a 28-year-old to a ‘rich’ Arab ‘shaikh’ from Oman who turned out to be a beggar, police said.
“The broker, identified as Sajida Begum, claimed before the victim’s parents that the shaikh is a rich person and made them to believe that after marriage she can seek an employment in a Gulf country. Accordingly, the marriage was performed in August last year,” stated a release from Hyderabad Police.
However, the woman who went to Oman with her husband later found that he was a beggar, and informed her parents in Hyderabad.
“The issue was brought to the notice of the police by the victim’s father in November last year and a cheating case was registered. The accused woman broker was arrested during the course of investigation,” it stated.
Police said the efforts were on to bring the victim back to Hyderabad.
