Woman in India 'marries' twice posing as man to get dowry

The accused, identified as Krishna Sen, alias Sweety Sen, and originally from Bijnor in UP, enticed women on Facebook posing as a man. According to the police, she told the Uttarakhand woman, known as Kamini, that she was the son of a businessman from Aligarh. She created a profile by the name of Krishna Sen in 2013.

The woman reportedly dressed as a man for four years while duping two women into marrying her allegedly for dowry. Soon after the marriage, Sen started beating her "wife" and demanding for dowry. Sen also allegedly took Rs 8.5 lakh from Kamini's family, police said.

Both the women she married didn t seem to have suspected her. Police claimed she was never sexually intimate with them.

While this tale is freaky, there are many things familiar about the script - men befriending women on social media to extort money from them, families willing to put up with outrageous demands from sons-in-law, and dowry being an accepted, default part of marriage.

"We got married in 2014, she used to behave like a man, used to drink, smoke and also abuse".

Instead, she proposed revenue for schools should come from the state's unrestricted general fund, the same way it's always funded. Democrats who opposed the bill said it would run counter to Iowa's tradition as a strong civil rights state, and Sen.

After discovering that Sen was indeed no "prince" charming, the first wife confronted her and was later threatened to keep her identity a secret for a sum of money. However, the girl from Kathgodam lodged a complaint with Haldwani Police alleging dowry demands and threats- which is how the case came to light.

"Although the initial case was related to dowry harassment, we have modified the complaint since the accused was revealed to be a woman after a medical examination and not the husband against whom the complaint was initially made", he said.

Police say Ms Sen developed a taste for the finer things in life after accruing dowry payments from her new wives. "I don't want to live with her now". She has been booked on charges of impersonation, fraud and forgery.

After her "marriages", Sen allegedly did not let the women look at her body or touch her and used sex toys to consummate the relationship, police said. "Technically she was not a husband therefore it can not be treated as marriage". Cops are also searching for Sen's family, who came to the homes of the women at the time of their engagement and wedding.
