Siliguri (WB): An imposter who posed as an armyman and was suspected to have lured 60 women into marrying him before selling them into prostitution rings has been arrested from Darjeeling district along with a woman.

The 27-year-old man, Vicky Viswakarma, was suspected to have married 60 women and then selling them into the flesh trade in Mumbai and Pune, Darjeeling Superintendent of Police Devendra Pratap Singh said.
