A car driver, who married 27-year-old Madhuri, daughter of yesteryear actress and Telugu Desam leader Kavitha, was arrested by the Punjagutta police here on Saturday on charges of cheating.
According to police, the accused, Rajkumar of Karimnagar, cheated two women in the name of marriage and married for the third time, Kavitha’s daughter being his latest victim. After coming to know of Raj Kumar’s third marriage to Madhuri, his second wife Raja Sri, a resident of Warasiguda, lodged a complaint with the police on Saturday.
The accused, Rajkumar, is working as a car driver in the city and married Annapurna and Raja Sri in the past.
The Punjagutta police said that Rajkumar married Annapurna, a resident of Huzurabad in 2005 and Raja Sri in 2008. On having differences with Raja Sri, he deserted her. Six months ago, he had proposed to Madhuri and she consented. Two days ago, they went to Karimnagar and married at a temple.
Raja Sri, a resident of Warasiguda in the city, came to know that Rajkumar married another girl and complained to the Punjagutta police.
She alleged that Rajkumar duped her in the name of marriage as he deserted her after she gave birth to a girl.
Basing on Raja Sri’s complaint, Punjagutta police registered a cheating case against Rajakumar and arrested him.
Kavitha said Rajkumar forced her daughter into marriage.
He gave a sedative-mixed drink to Madhuri and took her to Karimnagar. Rajkumar had also extorted money from Madhuri twice in the past, Kavitha alleged.
