She contended that last year, following a tabloid report that Salem had secretly married her, the police during their probe asked many people about the alleged marriage and also showed a photograph showing Salem with her, which sullied her character.

Since she was not unable to marry anybody else now, she wanted to marry Salem, she said. Salem said in his reply that he wanted to marry her so that she could "meet and answer all the relatives, friends and well-wishers with her head up in the society".

He intended to "compensate" the woman by accepting her proposal, the reply said.

"I also undertake to (take) care of her in all the respects once she gets married to me and...she will not be further defamed as officially she will be my wife," the gangster's application said.
