Undercover with the Marriage Detectives
Sheetal Parmar explores the world of pre-marital investigations and asks why an increasing number of British Asians are carrying out checks on potential partners.
Asian Network has been given unprecedented access to a private investigations company that carries out pre-marital checks and surveillance of potential marriage partners among British Asians.

It involves asset checks, surveillance, honeytrapping and, in some cases, lie detector testing.
