Delhi Police has arrested a 36-year-old man for allegedly cheating at least 30 women by posing as a divorcee on matrimonial sites and taking money from them on some pretext.
“The accused, identified as Manish Gupta, was arrested Monday on the basis of a complaint by a divorced woman, who had been cheated of Rs 75,000,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (northwest) Milind Dumbere.
In her complaint, the woman said Gupta had introduced himself as a businessman with an annual income of Rs 1 crore, said police.
