Dehradun (Uttarakhand): The Uttarakhand Police have arrested a woman for allegedly impersonating a man and marrying two women.
The police said that the matter came to light after the accused went through a medical checkup.
“We have arrested a woman who was impersonating a man and married two women. After a medical checkup, it was clear that the person was a woman. She became friends with a woman through Facebook and married her in 2014. She later married to another woman.”
According to the report published in Hindustan Times, 25-year-old Sweety Sen, a resident of Dhampur, Bijnore of Uttar Pradesh married two women for dowry. Sen posed as a man, Krishna. He allegedly started beating up one of the two victims. He reportedly collected Rs. 8.5 lakh from one of the wives.
One of the victims said that the accused used to behave like a man and had also threatened to kill her after marrying another woman.
“We got married in 2014. She used to behave like a man, used to drink, smoke and also abuse. She used to threaten to kill me after she married another woman. It got confirmed after medical examination that she was a woman and not a man,” said the victim.
Another woman said that she came to know the truth after two years of their marriage.
“We have been married for two years and I found the truth about her later. I did not register a complaint. I don’t want to live with her now,” said another victim.
It is also reported that police booked Krishna for forgery. However, no dowry act was added as she was not a husband.
As Sen’s family was present during both wedding, police is searching them.
