NRI booked for cheating Australian woman

Deepak Dhankar has been charged with deceiving a woman about his appearance on a dating website then engaging in sex with her. He pleaded guilty to the charge of procuring sex by fraud in October 2012. Dhankar deceived the woman into believing he was a muscular blonde Caucasian man named Jamie when chatting on the website Oasis, and he engaged in sex with her only on the condition she kept her eyes closed. The prosecutor said the woman kept her eyes closed and when they were in the shower and one of her children stirred in bed, she opened her eyes and found the man's skin was dark. She then became fearful for her safety and that of her children and decided to 'play along' till Dhankar left her home. She later confronted Dhankar over the deception at which time he pleaded with her not to report him to the police, and repeatedly called her. The next day he sent her a photograph of two girls and claimed they would be without a father if he was sent to jail. The woman said she was humiliated, angered and saddened by the ordeal that also left her suffering anxiety and panic attacks. The court was told Dhankar who is on bail had never shown any intention to harm the woman. He is to be sentenced later this month.
