A man ties the knot only to find that his wife has been married "multiple times" earlier. She even "misappropriates" his cash and gold ornaments, compelling him to lodge a complaint with the police.

The alleged story, somewhat on the lines of Sonam Kapoor starrer "Dolly Ki Doli", was brought to the Punjab and Haryana High Court's notice after the complainant-husband's parents-in-law sought anticipatory bail in a cheating case registered at a police station in Ludhiana in January last year.

Turning down the bail plea, Justice Arun Monga asserted: "Taking into consideration the allegations made in the FIR as well as in the inquiry report, I am of the opinion that petitioners are in the habit of playing fraud on innocent persons. They took active part in solemnising of four marriages of their daughter and were, thus, fully aware of the previous marriages, which took place at short interregnums..."

Justice Monga added it was stated in the report that the petitioners' daughter had not obtained decree of divorce from any court of law from any of her earlier husbands.

Justice Monga also observed she misappropriated cash and gold ornaments of the complainant. The counsel for the petitioners, on the other hand, submitted that they had been implicated. The arguments, however, did not find favour with the Bench as Justice Monga asserted: "In the premise, no ground for grant of anticipatory bail to the petitioners is made out".
