Patiala, Aug 4, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Member Parliament from Patiala, Preneet Kaur today wrote to the Minister of External Affairs S Jaishankar, raising the issue of the rising number of cases of contract marriage fraud for the purpose of getting Canadian PR and urged the external affairs ministry to work closely with the Canadian High Commissioner and the Canadian Government to solve this marriage fraud crisis.

In her letter to the External Affairs Minister, she also sought setting up a Commission to assess the scale of the fraud marriage crisis in India and analyse the number of cases and volume of fraud.

Preneet Kaur has also urged the ministry to develop a method to investigate such cases and recommended establishing a mechanism to deport people defrauding innocent citizens under the scam of fake marriage to redress the injustice encountered by victims.

Underlining her concern towards the imploding crisis, especially in the wake of prevailing economic condition which is forcing people to relocate to foreign lands to seek education or employment or to be with their families, the Patiala MP in her letter pointed out that the “allure of attaining a permanent residence in Canada has facilitated a few greedy people to take advantage of innocent Indian citizens and fraud them of large amounts of money through contract marriages and marriage fraud.”

This has led to substantial financial losses for many families resulting in despair and depression, even compelling people to commit suicide in some cases, she further pointed out.
