    • A Commandant in the 13th Battalion of Indian Reserve Police, Jammu, SR Samuel, IPS, has been charged with duping a Chennai woman into a marriage through misrepresentation. He has also been charged with ill-treatment, dowry harassment, cruelty and criminal intimidation.

      In her complaint to the Chennai Police Commissioner, T Sharmila complained (under Section 417 of IPC) that Samuel and his parents had cheated her and her family by claiming that he was a devout Hindu. He entered into a sham marriage — “dishonestly and fraudulently went through the marriage ceremony fully knowing that it was not a lawful marriage”. “The first counter petitioner, knowing fully well that the marriage is not lawful, caused me to cohabit with him leading me to believe that he was lawfully married to me,” Sharmila added in her complaint on September 7, 2009.
