Man borrows cash from 1st girlfriend pays for 2nd girlfriend abortion

Police have got hold of a serial philanderer and put him behind bars for allegedly cheating one of his girlfriends of around Rs 6.5 lakh, of which he'd used Rs 60,000 for the abortion of another girlfriend he'd impregnated.

The accused, identified as 23-year-old Ashwin Pandey resides in Kandivli West, Mumbai with his parents. According to a report in Mid-day, Pandey is also in the middle of divorce proceedings with this estranged wife.

In the middle of all this, Pandey befriended a 30-year-old woman a few months ago. In a bid to impress her, Pandey told her he had joined an airline as a security administrator.

After winning over her trust, the police said, Pandey cooked up stories to seek monetary assistance from her. "He allegedly cheated her of Rs 6.5 lakh under the pretext of meeting his monthly expenditure and bearing the medical expenses of a close relative who was injured in a road accident."

One fine day, she saw a cheery 'I love you' message on his phone. When she asked him about the sender, Pandey said it was from a man who'd been trying to hit on him on and off.

Distrustful of Pandey, she took down the number of the sender and dialled it when she was alone. A woman responded. "That woman told the complainant that Pandey had got her pregnant and the duo was recently in Delhi, where she underwent an abortion.

After learning about the other woman, on Friday, the complainant approached the Dindoshi police station and filed a case of rape and cheating against Pandey, who was held the same day. He has been remanded in police custody till December 26.
