Actor Arya on Monday expressed relief after the Chennai police department arrested a man for impersonating him and duping a Sri Lankan woman. “I would like to thank Commissioner of Police @chennaipolice_ Additional Commissioner of Police-Central Crime Branch and Cyber Crime Team of Chennai city for arresting the Real culprit. It was a real mental trauma which I never expressed. Love to everyone who believed in me (sic),” he wrote on Twitter.
The cyber crime wing of the city police arrested Mohammed Arman and his accomplice Mohammed Hussaini, both the residents of Pulianthope, in connection with the cheating case. Mohammed Arman posed as Arya on the internet and connected with a Sri Lankan Tamil woman now living in Germany. He also took Rs 65 lakh from the woman after promising to marry her.
