Man, who married fourteen women after advertising himself as a ‘doctor’, arrested
The culprit belongs to a village under Patkura police station in Odisha's Kendrapara district in India.
The Police have successfully caught the sexagenarian, the man who married fourteen women from seven states in India. It took him 48 years to do so and was finally arrested by Bhubaneswar police.
The culprit belongs to a village under Patkura police station in Odisha’s Kendrapara district in India. He took money from these women before he fleed. On the other hand, the man has denied these allegations upon his arrest.
The accused married in 1982 for the first time. He tied the knot to his second wife in early 2002. He had a total of five children from the two marriages. In the eighteen years, between 2002 and 2020, he befriended many other women through ‘marriage websites’ and married them without letting his other wives know.
Bhubaneswar Deputy Commissioner of Police, Umashankar Dash, said that he was now staying with his last wife in the Odisha capital. His last wife is a school teacher in Delhi, and she complained to the police after she came to know about his previous marriage.
After a detailed investigation was carried out into the matter, it was known that the accused targeted middle-aged women, mostly divorcees who advertised their need for companionship on matrimonial websites. Later, he would acquire money from them and then flee from the residence.
He introduced himself as a ‘doctor’ to these women. One of his ‘victims’ was a lady working in the para-military force. He had deceived women in seven states, including Odisha, Delhi, Assam, Jharkhand, and Punjab,
The Police also seized 11 ATM cards and four Aadhaar cards, along with other official documents from his possession. He has been arrested before this as well, for cheating unemployed youth and committing loan fraud.
