Woman poses as a man, marries two women for dowry in Uttarakhand


The woman posed as a man married two women and demanded dowry.

(Web Desk) - Indian police have arrested a 26-year-old woman who allegedly posed as a man and tricked two women into marriage for dowry. "She became friends with a person named Kamini Sen through Facebook and married her in 2014, she later married another woman". "The girl from Kathgodam area lodged a report with the Haldwani Police alleging of dowry demands and threats after which the police made the arrest". She told the Uttarakhand woman, identified as Kamini, that she was the son of a businessman from Aligarh, said the police. The second woman had attended Krishna's first marriage as a guest.

When Sweety Sen took on a man's clothes and mannerisms, she also took on the perverse power patriarchy gives a man, and allegedly used it to exploit other women.

Later, in 2016, Sen married a 20-year-old woman and rented an apartment with her. Sen never allowed either woman to see her body, and used sex toys to maintain the illusion of being male, according to authorities.

Speaking to the TOI, the Senior Superintendent of Police, Janmejay Khanduri, said that the woman is now facing charges of impersonation, fraud and forgery.

Medical experts warn about new flu strain emerging
ILI, or influenza-like illness, rose to a 7.7 percent increase, the most since the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, or swine flu. Welch says that he expects to see high rates of flu continue for the next several weeks.

Sen married another woman in April 2017, according to the BBC.

Doctors confirmed that Sen was a woman through a medical examination, added BBC. She alleged that Sen took $850,000 rupees (US$13,243) from her family, claiming she needed the money for a factory she owned in Hardwar.

Going by the police's version, Sen harassed and physically assaulted his wife, extorted money from her family, and then married a second time, but she approached the police only after years. However, Nisha came to know that Krishna was not a man, but she was lured by her to keep silent, by promising the former of monetary gains.

A report in the Hindustan Times says: "Sen told the police during interrogation that she has been a tomboy since childhood and pretended to be a boy". "Sen had convinced her that she was a man", Khanduri said. She used to threaten to kill me after she married another woman.

Since the arrest, police revealed that Krishna admitted she always wanted to live "a man's life".
