Hyderabad: Omani national Ahmed selected the teenager for marriage after going through the profiles of around two dozen girls and meeting some teenagers and their families.
The brokers, Ghousia Begum and Sikander, had gathered the pictures of the girls and arranged a meeting with some for the Omani. As agreed before the marriage, Ahmed paid Rs 5 lakh to the brokers at the time of ‘nikaah’ and the latter distributed it amongst themselves.
Police sources said the parents of the teenager and the brokers are giving conflicting versions on how they distributed the money. “Sikander obtained identity documents fraudulently with the help of some agents and applied for a passport through an Internet cafe owner. The police contacted Ahmed through the Indian Embassy in Oman and asked him to send the teenager back. The man said that he will send the girl soon. But now he is demanding the Rs 5 lakh he had paid to the brokers and the family here at the time of marriage. Embassy officials are also making efforts to convince him and is seeking help from the Oman government too,” said DCP, south,V. Satyanarayana.
The police is planning to take the help of the Interpol to get the Omani. “He has committed a crime and a case was registered against him at the Falaknuma police station. We have to bring him here and ensure justice to the teenager,” he said.
Meanwhile, the police caught a woman who had facilitated the marriage of the girl with the Omani. The broker was caught in Maharashtra and is being brought to the city, police said....
