New Delhi: After Dumka district in Jharkhand, ‘Love Jihad’ now spreads its fangs in Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow where a 39-year-old gym owner allegedly concealed his identity and posed as a Hindu man to marry a woman. He has been arrested for allegedly raping and assaulting her.

Police said the accused, identified as Faisal Ahmad, a resident of Vinay Khand, operates a gym under Gomti Nagar police station limits. He met the woman when she visited his gym for fitness training.

Chinhat police station in-charge Tej Bahadur Singh said that the accused posed as a Hindu and introduced himself to the woman as Atharv Singh.

The police further said that the accused married the woman in a temple to hide his identity and the woman got to know about it after marriage when he forcibly made her change her religion.

The woman also said that the accused raped and had unnatural sex with her. Police said that the woman alleged that the man assaulted and insulted her and threatened her with dire consequences if she told her family members or approached the police.
