As per information shared by Uttarakhand STF Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Ajay Singh, the three accused include a Nigerian national, a woman associate and a sim card dealer.

"The accused woman befriended the complainant through a fake profile on a matrimonial site and collected Rs 17,10,000 under the pretext of a marriage proposal," said Singh.
