Chennai, July 18(BPNS)

The Tamil Nadu police have booked a retired policeman, Vijayabalan against whom a woman had complained that he had ditched her after seven months of marriage.

The victim who is now 65 complained that after their marriage, they stayed at various places in Chennai city, and after seven months, Vijayabalan abandoned her. The complainant said that the retired cop told her that he was going to Hyderabad in search of a job and never came back.

The woman who was pregnant by then gave birth to a baby girl and after the daughter turned 10, she found that Vijayabalan had joined the Tamil Nadu police service and had married another woman. When she approached him and later police, he said that he was not the father of the girl.

In 2010 the woman’s daughter moved court and on the court orders, a DNA test was conducted which confirmed that the girl was Vijayabalan’s daughter.

The retired police officer is charged with Sections 294(b) (abusing),494 (marrying again when the wife is alive), and 509(insulting the modesty of a woman) of IPC. Police said that they are on the lookout for Vijayabalan whose whereabouts are not known.

A senior police officer investigating the case said,” We are searching his pension records and expect to get some lead on his whereabouts. Justice will be delivered to the hapless woman.”
