A 51-year-old former employee of the Income-tax department was arrested here Sunday by the Central Crime Station police for allegedly marrying a woman providing by wrong credentials and sending threatening e-mails to his first wife.
Muthyala Santosh Kumar Naidu, who is a private firm employee, was residing at a hotel beside Hotel Paradise in Secunderabad. He was the Lower Division Clerk (LDC) in Income Tax Department, Hyderabad.
Police said Naidu was earlier married to Thelma Ann Elias in 1985 and has a son from that marriage. He was convicted of siphoning funds to the tune of Rs 4 lakh from SBI Abids and was sent to Musheerabad jail for one year, after which he was granted bail. Thelma and he divorced in 2000. “Suppressing these facts, he created an account in Bharat Matrimony and uploaded his profile, seeking alliance. One Rachana Vyas from Jaipur contacted him and he lied to her, claiming to be an engineer working in the UK. They tied the knot in 2003, and had two daughters. He then reportedly started harassing her, after which she filed for divorce and harassment cases,” said police.
Suspecting Thelma’s involvement in this, he sent her an email threatening her, which read: ‘Remember me u old fat lady don’t ever try to break my family or I will becum vry angry n will becum mad means paagal and paagal kuch bhi kar sakta hai understood u bldy well understand.’ Based on the plaint by Rachana, police arrested Naidu.
