An Afghan national, Hameedullah, who was accused by a US citizen of cheating, sexual assault and extortion, was nabbed by Delhi Police Crime Branch earlier this week.
Hameedullah, who had an office in Karol Bagh area of New Delhi under the name Sunlight World Trade E-Commerce Company, had cheated and extorted money from a US national and then transferred the amount to his home country through Western Union Money Transfer.
The US citizen approached the Delhi Police and filed a complaint about being cheated and extorted in India by a man from Afghanistan.
Hameedullah allegedly lured the victim under the pretext of love and commitment. After gaining her confidence, he promised to marry her.
The accused started having a physical relationship with her and even took sexually explicit pictures and videos of her. Then he began to take money from her for various false pretexts which amounted to USD 86,000.
He even presented a fake marriage certificate which mentioned the victim as his wife.
When the victim asked him to repay the money, he threatened her that he would inform the FBI that the money transferred by her through Western Union was paid to terrorists in Kabul.
As per reports, Hameedullah had also conned many other women in the same way and was living a luxurious life with the same money.
