“He claimed to have an MBBS degree from a foreign university, spoke English with an accent and arrived in a luxury car to meet her for the first time”- the dentists stated in her complaint
New Delhi: A conman, who came to his wife’s clinic with an intention to kill her for filing a cheating case against him and his family, was arrested from northeast Delhi’s Maujpur area recently.
Manish Kaul alias Varun Kaul alias Ashutosh Marwa alias Vishesh Dheeman alias Sanjeev Chaddha tried to fire at a policeman but the bullet got stuck in the pistol, the police informed PTI.
In March, a woman doctor, a dentist had filed a cheating case against Kaul. She alleged that she came in contact with Kaul via a matrimonial website in 2015 when he introduced himself as a doctor, police said.
In her complaint, the dentist told the cops, “He claimed to have an MBBS degree from a foreign university, spoke English with an accent and arrived in a luxury car to meet her for the first time.”They met a few times and the wedding was fixed later.
She said that her father gave gold ornaments worth Rs 20 lakh to her in-laws as dowry and spent nearly Rs 50 lakh on their wedding.
After the wedding, her in-laws started demanding more dowry. Her father-in-law, who had claimed that he retired from the Indian Air Force as a doctor, molested her twice, she claimed. The father-in-law never worked in the Indian Air Force, according to a police statement.
Later, she came to know that her husband’s real name was Varun Kaul and that he was not a doctor. She also came to know that he has various cases filed against him in Delhi, Chandigarh, Goa and Maharashtra.
After she approached the Delhi Police, a team from Moti Nagar police station conducted a raid in Panchkula and two women were nabbed, police said, adding the accused and his father had escaped.
Kaul visited his wife’s clinic with an intention to harm her, but she was not present at the clinic. Kaul then threatened one of her colleagues with a pistol, police said.
A police team immediately reached the clinic and noticed Kaul walking away briskly. A policeman chased him and asked him to surrender but he took out the pistol and tried to open fire when the bullet got stuck in the firearm. He was overpowered by policemen and arrested.
The 47-year-old con artist used to wear a wig to pass off as a 25-year-old. The wig came off during a scuffle with the cops, reports TOI.
During interrogation, the accused revealed that he is a BAMS degree holder and not an MBBS degree holder as claimed by him, said Vijay Kumar, deputy commissioner of police (West).
He had committed a number of frauds by purchasing new luxury cars on bogus demand drafts. He and his father were arrested in September 2008 by the Mumbai Police in connection with cheating cases registered in Hauz Khas and Rohini in Delhi. The accused had also cheated two other women by promising to marry.
