Thane: A man was booked for allegedly conning his doctor wife of Rs 1.50 lakh, police said today.

Nadkarni had told Archana that he was unmarried and worked with a private mobile firm in the USA, police said.
"Soon after their marriage, he started demanding money from Archana under the pretext of relocating as the duo were living separately after marriage. He had taken money from Archana on several occasions," Patil said.
The accused had taken money from her on several occasions after meeting Archana at her residence, at suburban Bandra, at Fort in South Mumbai and near Ashapura temple here. Efforts are on to nab Nadkarni, police said.
