Uttarakhand police have arrested Sweety Sen, who pretended to be a man to marry two women and allegedly tortured one of them for dowry in the state’s Nainital district.
Nainital’s senior superintendent of police Janmejay Khanduri said
“The lady used to pose as a man in terms of looks and enticed women on Facebook and later married them”
Sweety Sen created a fake account on Facebook in the name of Krishna Sen in 2013 and posted pictures posing as a man. She then chatted with several women on social media and enticed them.
Police said Sen came to Kathgodam area of Haldwani to meet a woman she had befriended on Facebook in 2014 and told her she was the son of a CFL bulb businessman from Aligarh.
She started beating her wife, who holds a double master’s degree, and demanding for dowry. She took Rs 8.5 lakh from the woman’s family to set up a factory.
Then she lured another woman from Kaladhungi town and married her in April 2016. The second wife was present during Sen’s first wedding as a guest.
After marriage, she did not let her “wives” look at her body or touch her and used to have a “fake” physical relationship using sex toys
“The girl from Kaladhungi came to know that Krishna was not a man, but she lured her to keep silent by promising her money. 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,”
Sen told the police during interrogation that she has been a tomboy since childhood and pretended to be a boy. She said she had cut her hair to look like a man and used to drive a motorcycle and smoke cigarettes.
Police got her medically examined that proved she was a woman.
