Long-distance relationships are not easy to sustain. Being in a long-distance relationship after marriage can be more taxing and a husband from Thane got a bitter aftertaste of the same.
As per the news report, the husband ‘Mastan’ is working as a mechanic in the UAE since 2007. He would send his wife the monthly expenditure for her and their 9-year-old-son. Mastan has worked hard and even bought a house for his wife and son to stay. But while he was away working, his wife got in touch with her old boyfriend and her behavior towards ‘Mastan’ then changed drastically and she was always engaged on her phone. Things became worst in the year 2017 when Mastan came back and Nilofer even refused to meet him.
SB Shinde the investigation officer of Mumbra police station was quoted, “After making some discreet inquiries, Mastan learned that even his house had been sold off for 32 lakhs and the money was handed over to his wife.” A lawyer was also involved in the con-case and reportedly got Mastan’s signature on a stamp paper that mentioned the couple was staying separately due to work.
And when Mastan returned to the country early this year, he now received the divorce papers! The papers showed his signatures in April 2017, when he was actually working abroad. So it was a clear case of cheating. Shinde said, “We have verified his passport documents, visa papers, etc and it is clear he landed in India only after that date. Charges of cheating, forgery and marrying again while spouse is alive have been filed.”
If convicted, Nilofer can face up to 7 years of jail. But currently, Nilofer is out on anticipatory bail in Thane sessions court.
