Wellawaya Police have arrested a person on charges of bigamy and duping various persons to the value of Rs. 8 million under the pretext of providing foreign employment.

Acting OIC Wellawaya Police H.M. Anil said the suspect who was arrested while hiding at his 6th wife's house at Bandinagoda in the Wellawaya Police area had impersonated as a Grama Seva Officer, a police sergeant and a sub-agent of a foreign employment agency in carrying out his activities. The police have also recovered two forged National Identity Cards in his possession.

Police said they recovered from the suspect Rs. 1.5 million said to be from the money he had obtained by duping foreign job seekers from such areas as Minuwangoda, Ja Ela, Kuliyapitiya, Wellawaya and Badulla.

The suspect has been produced before the Kuliyapitiya Magistrate and remanded.
