In a freakish and bold case of fraud, a woman called Sweety Sen from Bijnor, pretended to be a man and married two women in order to get dowries out of them. She became friends with a woman through Facebook and married her in 2014.

Sen was traced by police and arrested on Wednesday. According to the police, she told the Uttarakhand woman, known as Kamini, that she was the son of a businessman from Aligarh. The "second wife", identified as Nisha, was present during Sen's first wedding as a guest. The lady used to pose as a man in order to look attractive and entice other females on social media platform, Facebook and later on got married to the 2 women. As the two women got married, Sen allegedly started manhandling Kamini for dowry. The second wife told police Sen kept trying to harass her family for a dowry, which ultimately led to her arrest.

"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.

"We had no clue that Sen was a woman". She also told police that during both the marriages she had "fake" physical relationship using sex toys due to which the women failed to find out about her gender. The woman is also alleed to have tortured one of her "wives" for dowry.
