Francina Anthony of Cheriyathura who had worked for 30 years in Sharjah said that Showkathali of Kollam had married her by concealing the fact that he was married and then fleeced Rs 10 crore from her.

In a statement issued to the media, she said that  Showkathali had married her in Mumbai in 1981.
