Aslam was taking wedding vows with a minor girl when police were informed. However, he managed to flee the wedding venue.

Like Vikram Thappar of Bollywood film Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, he conned many people and married six women by changing his identity, but ran out of luck while taking wedding vows with a minor Hindu girl in Jharkhand’s Bokaro.

50-year-old Aslam Khan, a native of Dhanbad, has been arrested from Ranchi for sexually assaulting a minor girl before tying the knot with her in Bokaro last month.

According to police officers, the conman often posed as police officers of different ranks to dupe people and marry six women from Muslim, tribal and Hindu communities.

On December 8 last year, he was taking wedding vows when someone attending the function informed the police about his real identity. Meanwhile, he got wind of what was coming. He stepped down from the wedding stage and fled the spot in his Scorpio SUV car.

He was at large since then and was finally arrested from Ranchi on February 1.

As per the police, Aslam posed himself as a Hindu man named Sanjay Kasera, a resident of Bokaro to marry the minor girl.

Based on her complaint, Aslam was booked under relevant sections of the Prevention of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) in Bokaro on December 8, 2022.

“Aslam Khan threatened me to indulge in sexual intercourse and marry him. He also concealed his religion,” reads the complaint filed in Hindi.

The police said that Aslam has a criminal record and he is an accused in many serious criminal cases at various police stations in Chas, Dhanbad, Ranchi, and Hazaribagh in Jharkhand. He is facing sections like 379, 406, 420, 341, 323, 366 and 414 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

He is also accused of impersonating a police officer to persuade family members of a girl. He allegedly posed as a police inspector and a deputy superintendent of police (DSP) to threaten and extort money from many of his victims.

During his run from Bokaro, the accused kept changing his location to avoid arrest.
