Ludhiana police have arrested a man who was allegedly posing as a Canadian police official and had solemnised two marriages. A cheating case has been registered against him by Division number 5 police.

Addressing mediapersons here today, Superintendent of Police (SP) R K Jaiswal said the man has been identified as Inderjit Singh Gill alias Inderjit Singh Dhamota. The SP added that Inderjit hailed from Sahnewal and had migrated to Canada in 1992 after he was adopted by one of his father’s friends.

SP Jaiswal informed that police have impounded a Qualis car on which Inderjit Singh had put up a red light for posing as a police official from Canada. Police also claimed to have seized some fake documents including some fake identity cards from him.

Inderjit was arrested from near Bharat Nagar Chowk on Wednesday evening. ‘‘At the time of his arrest, Inderjit was wearing the uniform of Canada police,’’ Jaiswal said. The SP highlighted that police had received information that a man was seen roaming about in the city for over one month in the uniform of Canada police.

SP said that after his immigration to Canada in 1992, Inderjit Singh started working with a private security agency and was posted at Hudson Bay Shopping Complex in Victoria B.C. in Canada. In 1999, he was arrested in Canada on the charges of impersonation. In 2003, he came to India and got married to one innocent girl and took her to Canada after one month of marriage. But in Canada, both filed a case for divorce with mutual consent. The case is still pending, said Jaiswal.

SP said that Inderjit Singh kept coming to India and used to stay in Ludhiana. He came to India in the end of 2004 and again on March 5 this year. After coming here, he again got married to another local girl. This marriage had been fixed through a matrimonial advertisement which Inderjit Singh had placed in a newspaper. For getting this marriage fixed, Inderjit Singh had posed as a police official from Canada. SP said that the new wife of Inderjit Singh was shocked to know that he wasn’t a real policeman.

SP said that they had got in touch with the Canadian embassy and were now contacting the Canada police for getting the antecedents of Inderjit Singh.
