Earlier on March 11, police had busted a gang allegedly involved in looting families of brides after marrying them and arrested five people who were part of the group.
The gang members had been arrested after their entire scheme got busted when the brother of the bride got suspicious after the groom’s family demanded Rs 50,000 for marriage preparation, two days after the Nikkah ceremony.
Senior Superintendent Police (SSP) Central had said while commenting on the entire episode that the entire family was a fraudster and had committed various crimes.
“This family used to run away with the jewelry of the bride,” he said while sharing their modus operandi.
