A fraud case coming from the Deriya area of Badiyal Brahmana where a relationship bringer makes her sister-in-law who is a resident of Doda marry an aged person of a poor family and the mediator in exchange demands 60,000 rupees from the groom. The marriage took place before the corona pandemic in a temple in Swankhe.
4 months after the marriage the mediator asked the family of the groom that the bride’s parents want to meet her and he is taking her with him and she will return after a week. But after a week the bride didn’t return and on asking the mediator he started giving excuses. Then the groom’s family reported the matter to the SHO RS Pura and on investigating, it was found that the woman was already married to some other person. The police arrested the mediator and on threatening he returned 29,000 rupees.
Now the mediator has registered a case against the groom and his family that they have kidnapped his sister-in-law and the Doda police have arrested the groom and his family.
While talking to the media the locals said “the Doda police is using their powers in the wrong manner. They have arrested our neighbor at night without informing the Panch or Sarpanch. They are harassing the poor family. We all have attended the marriage and a false case has been registered. We want that the J&K LG and The IG Jammu should look into the matter and a CBI probe should take place in the matter”.
