Moga, January 25
A Moga youth Kulwinder Singh has been booked after he allegedly cheated an NRI woman by backtracking from the promise of marrying her.

However, a couple of months back, she came to know that Kulwinder had solemnised wedding with another woman. She tried to contact him, but he did not respond to her calls.
In a statement given to the police, the victim NRI woman said, “He proposed marriage, but kept on delaying it. I tried to help him through bad times by sending him money, household items and also gifts but later found out that he was married to someone else.”
After conducting a preliminary investigation, the police have registered a case of fraud under Section 420 of the IPC against the alleged accused youth at the Moga City-I police station, here.
