Man who marries two Women within five days on the run
A 26-year-old software engineer who allegedly married two women within five days is presently on the run.
Madhya Pradesh had taken to his heels after the family of his first wife had laid complaint of cheating against him at the local police station.
Based on the complaint filed by lady’s family on Saturday, the police has commenced investigation into the matter; said a police chief.
The accused was alleged to have married the first woman in an India district on December 2 then traveled to another district to marry another woman on December 7, 2020.
The cat was let out of the bag when one of the first wife s relatives who had gone to a wedding dinner in the other district sent photographs of the man’s second marriage to her family through a mobile phone.
According to the police the family had wanted a FIR opened against the man because they had spent huge amount of money on the marriage and in providing household items for the bride before the marriage.
The family stated that the accused, after marrying their daughter, had taken her to his place in Indore to live with him.
After a few days, he told her that he had to go to Bhopal for some unavoidable work, but he went to marry another woman, the official said.
On December 2, the accused had come for the wedding with his parents, brothers, sister and other relatives; showing his commitment to the marriage; he said.
When the second woman’s family spoke to the first lady with whom the accused tied the knot in Indore, she told them that her marriage was arranged and not a forced one.
After December 7, the accused did not return home and switched off his mobile phone.
Search was underway for the runaway husband.
Some unscrupulous men cheat on their wives by marrying other women as a way of amassing wealth for themselves. This is because by their tradition, it is the woman that pays the bride price.
