Kanpur. Adopting a new tactic, the Kanpur Police used a fake marriage proposal to implicate a criminal. The criminal was evading arrest for the past several months. A head constable and a constable reached the house of criminal Dharmendra Chandel alias Binu Thakur from Kakadev police station in Udaipur village of Sachendi area and proposed marriage with a dowry of Rs 10 lakh as the girl’s brother.
The two cops took an elderly man with whom they posed as the girl’s father. There was also a photo of a girl with him.
The criminal’s family immediately agreed to the proposal and then the police insisted on meeting the prospective groom.
Binu Thakur, a notorious auto thief, was in Delhi. He reached home on Monday evening to finalize the proposal and was immediately arrested.
DCP West Sanjeev Tyagi has announced a cash reward for two policemen for doing a drama to nab the absconding criminal for the past one year.
Later the police arrested two of his associates from Kalyanpur area and recovered several stolen two-wheelers from their possession.
When some sources told the police that the family members of the accused were looking for the girl for marriage, Inspector Kunj Bihari Mishra of Kakadev police station said that the police had come to know that Binu Thakur’s family wanted her to get married.
He said, “We hatched this unusual conspiracy and sent two policemen – constables Dharmendra Tiwari and Amit – as brother and an elderly man as the father of a girl to the accused’s house with a marriage proposal. On seeing the photo, The family members agreed to call Dharmendra from Delhi.”
“As soon as Dharmendra arrived from Delhi, the alert police arrested him and later sent him to jail,” the inspector said.
