Hyderabad: A middle-aged man was arrested today from Secunderabad for allegedly sending threatening e-mails to his ex-wife, suspecting that she helped his second wife in exposing his "criminal past", police said.
"M Santosh Kumar Naidu had divorced his first wife and married another woman by suppressing the facts on his profile posted on a matrimonial website," Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Detective) Mohammed Zafer Javid told reporters.
Naidu was earlier convicted and jailed for siphoning off funds from a PSU bank to the tune of Rs 4 lakh, he said.
Later, Naidu, posted a profile claiming he was unmarried and an engineer working in the United Kingdom, police said, adding that a woman from Jaipur contacted him and they got married, police said.
However, Naidu started harassing her after marriage following which she filed for divorce, Javid said.
"Suspecting that his first wife might have informed the second one about his past, Naidu developed a grudge against her and started sending her threatening emails," the officer said.
After his first wife lodged the complaint, police traced the e-mails and arrested Naidu, he added.
