The Shikshak Colony, Bharat Nagar resident Monalisa Pandharinath Kukde (36), with the hope of getting married, had registered herself at website, a matrimonial portal, on 16.12.2015. On the same website, the con accused Shivam Satyam Arya created his bogus profile and contacted Monalisa and promised her to tie the nuptial knot. After winning Monalisa’s trust, the so-called Shivam Satyam Arya asked her to deposit/transfer over Rs 2.50 lakh in a given bank account from time to time. However, once the amount was deposited, the accused “would-be husband” went “silent” since then. Umpteen efforts by Monalisa to contact him proved futile.
