She had filed the complaint through a Germany based lawyer, and after the hearing her case, the judge had asked the police to collect more information, and adjourned the case to August 17.
Now, following an investigation, cops have arrested two individuals who had posed as the actor and duped the woman. One Mohammad Armaan of Pulianthope had posed as Arya on social media and interacted with the woman, and extorted money from her promising to marry her. Armaan’s brother-in-law Mohammad Hussaini Faik was also found to be an accomplice in this scam, and has been arrested by a special team set up under Additional Commissioner Raghavendra K Ravi with inspector Sundar leading the investigation.
The two culprits were nabbed by the police on August 24 at Perumpulipakkam near Ranipet. Two mobile phone, a laptop and and iPad were seized from them, and they have now been remanded to judicial custody.
A relieved Arya tweeted, “I would like to thank Commissioner of Police @chennaipolice_ Additional Commissioner of Police-Central Crime Branch and Cyber Crime Team of Chennai city for arresting the Real culprit. It was a real mental trauma which I never expressed. Love to everyone who believed in me.”
