A man from Uttar Pradesh's Kushinagar was arrested for allegedly hiding his identity to marry a Dalit woman. The accused, Tabrez Alam, changed his name to Aryan Prasad and lied to the woman that he was a police inspector in Gorakhpur.

Tabrez Alam was in a relationship with the woman for a year before her family found out. The woman's family put forward the proposal for the couple to be married and Tabrez Alam agreed immediately.

Their wedding was to take place on February 25, when all of Tabrez Alam's lies became unravelled.

While the woman's side waited for the wedding procession to arrive, Tabrez Alam called and said his mother suffered a heart attack. He told the woman's family that the wedding procession would no longer be able to come.

Afterwards, the bride and the groom exchanged garlands on the stage prepared for the event. The next part of the ceremony was where the groom was supposed to give the bride clothes and jewellery.

The bride's family suspected the jewellery was fake, and a quick check confirmed their suspicions. Soon a dispute started and as it escalated, Tabrez Alam's wig fell off from his head.

People then conducted a body search on Tabrez and found his Aadhaar Card inside his pocket. That is when they realised he lied about his identity and lured the woman with lies to marry him.
