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

Going in Depth Uttarakhand Police on Wednesday arrested a woman named Sweety Sen, who is a resident of Dhampur, Uttar Pradesh, posed as a man and married two women.

A 31-year-old woman from Uttarakhand was on Thursday arrested by police for convincingly posing as a man to marry two women and allegedly torturing first wife for dowry.

Police suspect that the 25-year-old began posing as a man back in 2014 when she first created a Facebook account.

People such as Sen's wives are not victims of one person alone, they are victims of a society that priortises women's silence over speaking the truth, silent martyrdom over demanding justice, and of a system that has institutionalised dowry.

Sen lured the woman into her trap by claiming she was the son of a CFL bulb businessman.

The woman has been identified as Sweety Sen who went with the alias Krishna Sen.

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.

Another incident took place in Kaladhungi town when she conned a woman and married her in April 2016. Police have also said that they are looking for Sweety Sen's family members who were present at both the weddings and allegedly visited the homes of the copnned women, identified as Kamini and Nisha.

In 2014, Sen travelled to Haldwani's Kathgodam area to meet a woman she befriended on the social media website.

The accused confessed to police that she used to indulge in a physical relationship with her "wives" in pitch darkness by using sex toys ordered through online sites.

Sweety took dowry of Rs. 8.5 lakh from Kamini's family and later started beating her for more dowry, Kamini said. "We got her medical examination done (on Wednesday evening) and it was established that she was a woman". She also reportedly beat the woman, seeking dowry, Hindustan Times reported.

Sen had male friends, used men's toilets, and spoke in a male tone of voice, according to police.

Her former in-laws filed a police complaint alleging that Sen harassed their daughter for a dowry.

Krishna's bluff was called after the first wife registered a complaint with the police. "Sen had convinced her that she was a man", Khanduri said.

"Krishna has been booked for forgery and not for dowry".
