The family members of the girl who posed as a male and duped two girls by marrying them, are now on the radar of the Nainital Police. Twenty-six-year old Krishna Sen alas Sweety was arrested for demanding dowry in Haldwani two days back.

The case of a woman hiding her identity to cheat two girls has created shockwaves here.

When Krishna married a girl based in Kathgodam most family members of the ‘groom’ attended the marriage.

Nainital Police’s sub inspector Sanjay Joshi said, “Earlier the case was of demanding dowry and now it is of forgery and cheating.

We will be collecting evidence, including photographs and video of the marriage, etc. Based on the evidence, we will arrest other co-accused of the case.”

Krishna’s mother, brother and sister are reported to have attended the wedding proving that they too were involved in cheating an innocent girl and her family members.

The first marriage took place in February 2014 and Krishna separated from her first wife to marry a second girl last year.

Krishna grew in confidence after her first marriage and used to chat on social media with young girls and women posing as a young businessman.

Krishna was in the process of marrying a third woman, this time a married woman from Haridwar, when she was arrested.

The most striking part of the case is the way Krishna handled the first wife. On the issue of physical relations, according to the first wife, “Krishna told me he was suffering from some illness.”

Sen duped her in-laws by taking Rs 8.50 lakh for setting up a bulb factory at Kathgodam. Wearing male clothes, driving a motorcycle and by smoking and drinking, Krishna behaved like a man.

After a year with the first wife, Krishna separated and married another girl in April last year. When the first girl came to know about the second marriage, her family lodged a police complaint about dowry demands and harassment.

The Nainital Police began investigations and arrested Krishna on 14 February. The police was shocked to learn that Krishna was a woman. A medical examination was conducted which proved that she was female.

Krishna had prepared all her government documents, including voter I-card and Aadhaar card showing her gender as male. Even on social media Krishna had disclosed her gender as male.

Hailing from Bijnore in Uttar Pradesh, Krishna’s family members are likely to land in big trouble for supporting her in the forgery.

The Nainital Police has started the process of collecting evidence against the family members of the ‘groom’ who had attended the wedding in 2014.

The first wife has provided the police photographs of the marriage.

The video and photographs of the marriage will act as strong evidence for arresting other people involved in the case.
