Techie arrested for abandoning woman after marrying her

New Delhi: A 38-year-old software engineer who had dishonestly married a woman was arrested from Omicron area of Greater Noida, Delhi Police said on Thursday, claiming that the accused Atul Kumar Tomar had registered himself on a matrimonial site to entrap women.

Cops said that a woman had filed a complainant on May 31, claiming that she came in tcontact with Tomar in May 2016, through the matrimonial site, where he pretended to be a software engineer serving in a reputed company in Gurugram district of Haryana, and earning Rs 30 lakh per year.

Shibesh Singh, DCP (Dwarka), stated that on July 2016, the woman married Tomar without realising his identity was a sham.

Later on, she came to know that he was already married and had two children. Soon, the accused abandoned the complainant and vanished.

Singh added that as the complainant was not aware of the whereabouts of the accused person, a Delhi Police team reached Gurugram after the woman told them of the Gurugram based company that he worked in.

From the company's register, Tomar was found to be a resident of Ghaziabad, but he was not found at the listed address. "It was later found that he had given the house on rent and had shifted somewhere in Noida, along with his family two years ago," said the DCP.

The complainant told police that the accused had shared with her that he wanted to develop his own company called Buck Eye Soft Ltd.

The name of this company was searched on Google and it was found to be existing, with the name of the accused list as one of the directors of the company. Further, a savings bank account of State Bank of India was also found in the company's name.

A police team visited the bank branch where the account was listed, from where they got details of the accused living in Noida. A raid was conducted and soon Tomar was nabbed.

"He disclosed that he had registered his name on the matrimonial site to flirt with girls and have fun. He soon came in contact with the complainant and married to her," said Singh, adding that Tomar thought that after some time, he would leave her and escape.
