Hyderabad: The Jawaharnagar police arrested a soldier of the Army on charges of cheating a woman and marrying her after keeping his first marriage a secret.
Police said the accused, S Ramesh, 30, a native of Adilabad, married S Hema in 2018 after a relationship and the couple lived in Balaji Nagar in Kapra. According to the police, three months after their marriage, Ramesh went to Jammu and Kashmir, claiming he was posted there.
He only visited her during holidays in that period. Sources said he recently came home during vacation and stayed with her. However, a few days ago his first wife came to their house and told Hema that Ramesh was married to her and they also have a seven-year-old daughter.
On realising she was cheated, Hema approached the police and lodged a complaint. A case of cheating was booked and Ramesh was arrested on Friday. He was produced before in a court and remanded in judicial custody.
