NRI woman dupes Punjabi husband, seeks divorce
MOGA: Close on the heels of a Canadian NRI conspiring to eliminate his wife by hiring contract killers, a case of an Australian NRI woman duping her Punjabi husband has come to light.
Bagipura village resident Gurwinder Singh had married Amandeep Kaur, who has been living in Australia, in 2009 and sent her Rs 16.70 lakh for further studies, said family members of Gurwinder.
While leaving for Australia after solemnizing the marriage, Amandeep had promised to help Gurwinder reach Australia after getting visa for him, which she never did. Instead, she sent divorce papers to Gurwinder some days ago.
Police have booked Amandeep Kaur, her father Ajmer Singh, mother Jasbir Kaur and brother Amarinder Singh for fraud and cheating. Amarinder was arrested on Wednesday.
It was on Tuesday when Moga's Nihal Singh Wala police booked Gurjit Singh of Canada for allegedly hiring contract killers to eliminate his Punjabi wife Harpreet Kaur. The victim had told the police that she came to know of her husband marrying again in Canada, and had been pressurizing her for divorce.
