Woman Arrested After Posing As A Groom To Get Dowry During Wedding

Krishna Sen alias Sweety Sen pretended to be a man to marry two women and allegedly tortured one of them for dowry

A bewildering incident occurred when a 25-year-old woman named Sweety Sen allegedly disguised as a man for 4 years, conned two women into marrying her and traumatised one of them for dowry, claimed Uttarakhand's Haldwani on Thursday, February 15.

As far as the hapless wives are concerned, when the girl from Kaladhungi came to know that Sen was not a man, she silenced her by promising money. According to the police, she told the Uttarakhand woman, known as Kamini, that she was the son of a businessman from Aligarh.

The police are now looking for Sen's family, who came to the homes of both women for their engagement and wedding. Nainital's senior superintendent of police Janmejay Khanduri told local media Hindustan Times that the accused woman posed as Krishna Sen but her original name is Sweety Sen. She used to threaten to kill me after she married another woman.

"Sen had convinced her that she [Sen] was a man", Khanduri said.

The police also got a medical test of the accused which proved that she was indeed a woman. Sen, who was born a woman, created a fake Facebook profile back in 2013 with the intent of meeting other women. The disguised man also allegedly took Rs 8.5 lakh from Kamini's family, according to a statement provided by the police.

During her police interview, Sen confessed that she's really a woman, a statement later confirmed by the court-ordered medical examination. Her gender was revealed during an interrogation, BBC reports.

In October 2017, Sen's first wife lodged a complaint against Sen in Kathgodam police station under charges of dowry and domestic violence.

In year 2016, Sen tied the knot with another woman who hailed from Kaladhungi area of Nainital district and moved to Haridwar with her.

Krishna's bluff was called after the first wife registered a complaint with the police.

Sen not only pretended to be a man, she managed to live a life typical of men in India. Officers have charged her with fraud, impersonation and forgery. The Indian woman was booked into jail on Wednesday, and the authorities are waiting for the complete report to arrive in order to approach the families affected by Sen's scams.
