LAHORE: The Misri Shah police on Thursday lodged a case against a constable for committing frauds by contracting multiple marriages to deprive women of their money and other valuables and torture of his most recent wife.

The case was registered against Constable Faisal Younis on the complaint of his 6th wife (A) over fraud and physically torturing her for not bringing money from her parents.

In her complaint, she alleged that some months after marriage in May 2018, Faisal started asking her to bring money from her parents and she did as per his wishes. He later demanded a motorcycle, an LCD TV and an electric geyser and she acted as per his wish, she said and added that Faisal recently exerted pressure on her to force her parents to sell their house and give her a share.

The complainant said Faisal tortured her severely when she refused to meet his demand. She said she later stumbled on some documents in the house, pertaining to previous marriage certificates of Faisal. She was shocked when Faisal confirmed his previous five marriages and on further inquiry it appeared that he used to contract marriages with women to obtain money and valuables.

She also came to know that Faisal used to divorce his wives after about a year of marriage.

The police lodged a case against the constable.
