In a common practice of 'fake' marriages to find greener pastures in western countries, a youth hailing from Dhudike village in Moga district has been cheated by a Canada-based NRI woman of Rs 24.11 lakh on the pretext of marriage and helping him get a work permit.

Mahinder Kaur, mother of Kamaldeep Singh who fell victim to a 'sham' marriage, in a statement alleged that Pawandeep Kaur, presently settled in Canada, solemnised marriage with his son last year.

Pawandeep originally hails from Kaonke Khosa Khurd village of Jagraon subdivision in Ludhiana district. She came to India to solemnise the marriage with Kamaldeep and also lived at his house for a month before going back to Canada.

After the marriage, she and her parents allegedly took Rs 24.11 lakh from Kamaldeep and his parents on various occasions to arrange a sponsorship for him. He went to Canada and lived with his wife for a couple of months, but later, she threw him out of her house and complained to the Canadian police.

A criminal case under Sections 420 and 120B of the IPC has been registered against Pawandeep Kaur and her father Ranjit Singh at the Ajitwal police station. The police raided the house of Ranjit Singh but he is absconding.
