Police in Madhya Pradesh's Chhatarpur on Thursday arrested a criminal, wanted in 16 different criminal cases including murder for the past one year, from a temple by planning a fake marriage.
The police came to know that he was looking for a woman to marry. Police laid a trap and asked a woman police personnel to contact him through mobile. Balkishan Chaubey, who was a resident of Bijouri village of Mahoba district of UP, was carrying a reward of Rs 10,000 on his head.
“Police arranged a SIM card of New Delhi circle in the name of a woman laborer from Bundelkhand, who is presently living in New Delhi. The woman sub-inspector called Chaubey and said she mistakenly dialed his number. Chaubey asked her whereabouts and later he checked the credentials of the number. Chaubey called her back and they started talking to each other. After a week, the woman proposed marriage to him,” said Police.
Chaubey had produced before the court on Friday and sent to jail.
