Lucknow, February 9: A 22-year-old man who duped a woman constable of the Uttar Pradesh Police by claiming to have cleared the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examination was arrested on Thursday from the Khadra area of the city. The man, identified as Vijay Singh, had married the constable in 2023 and later subjected her to physical and mental torture. He also threatened to kill her when she confronted him about his lies.

According to the Hindustan Times report, Vijay Singh, a native of Gonda district, had met the constable through a matrimonial website and posed as a UPSC aspirant. He told her that he had passed the written exam in 2023 and was awaiting his interview. He also showed her fake documents from UPSC to convince her.

The couple got married in 2023 and started living in rented accommodation in the Khadra area under the jurisdiction of the Madehganj police station. However, after a few months, the constable realized that Singh had lied to her about his UPSC status and had no source of income. She also found out that he had two criminal cases registered against him in his hometown for abduction and forgery.

When she confronted him about his deception, he became violent and started beating her. He also threatened to kill her if she exposed him or left him. The constable endured the abuse for several months, hoping that he would change.
