Zira (Ferozepur), May 17
Hargopal Singh, a youth of Botianwala village of this subdivision, was happy when his marriage was solemnised with Paramjit Kaur, a citizen of Canada. He was at cloud nine when he landed in Canada along with his better half a few months ago.
However, within a few months his life became hell due to torture allegedly by his wife and his in-laws in Canada. He was shocked when he came to know that his wife was in the business of “illegal immigration” and she brought youths of Punjab to Canada after getting married to them in lieu of money.
Though Hargopal tried his best to get rid of his wife by coming back to India, he could not succeed. He is allegedly being subjected to physical torture by his wife Paramjit despite the fact that she has taken 10 acres of land, 40 tolas of gold and Rs 10 lakh from Hargopal before entering into wedlock with him.
After having fed up with the repeated torture of his son, Amar Singh, father of Hargopal, approached the police with a complaint that Paramjit had defrauded his family. He also alleged that Paramjit Kaur had got married twice before getting married to Hargopal. Paramjit, who originally belonged to Moga district, was living in Surrey, Canada.
Paramjit, who got married to Hargopal, was trying to divorce him, so that she could get married to another boy and loot him.
On his complaint, a case against Paramjit Kaur was registered in the local police station. Apart from it, Chinder Singh and his wife Chinder Kaur, who acted as “matchmaker” between Hargopal and Paramjit, Baljinder Singh and Tarsem Singh, brothers of Paramjit, had been booked for their involvement in these “illegal activities.”
Police sources said Chinder Kaur had been arrested while the other accused would be arrested shortly. Paramjit was still in Canada. The anti-fraud wing of the police was investigating the case.
