Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh): The police have arrested the kingpin of ‘Looteri Dulhan gang’, sources said on Saturday.

According to reports, the accused had duped several persons on the pretext of marriage.

In charge of Lordsganj police station, Praful Shrivastava said that the accused were carrying a reward of Rs 5,000 each on their arrest.
