Fraudulent NRI Marriages- UK Govt Planning Legislation to Help to Victims.

Jalandhar born Mr. Virendra Sharma who is a sitting British MP for Ealing, Southall was on a visit to his birth place. He expressed his deep concern on the plight of the young Punjabi brides who have been trapped in fraudulent NRI marriages.

Mr. Sharma has advised parents of the prospective bride to do a background check on every foreign based bride groom. He said because of their culture and values Indian brides do not report domestic violence . In UK a anti Dowry Act is in the pipeline and there are many existing provisions against spousal violence and torture.He said girls in UK should be made aware of the legal support system.Mr. Sharma has also approached the Indian High Commission in Britain to extend maximum support to such victims. Indian High Commission's response has been " encouraging ."
