According to the cops, she has filed rape and dowry cases against two other men, too. Her family, including her brother, mother and father, are also involved in the racket.

The woman, married the Andheri man according to Arya Samaj rituals in November. She then applied for the marriage certificate even though the man insisted on filing the applications.

In May, she filed a rape case against him, which made him worried and suspicious. The man then applied for a copy of his marriage certificate and learnt that no application was found. His wife had given him a fake marriage certificate.

Another Mumbai resident is also her victim and faces the charges of dowry harassment and rape. The police said she picked her victims on matrimonial sites, targeting upper-middle class men.

The Andheri resident stated, “I divorced my first wife and wanted to marry again for the sake of my parents. I registered myself on a matrimonial site and connected with her in August 2022. Her profile mentioned that she was divorced, too.”

He travelled to Indore to meet her family on September 17, 2021. “A few days later, she told me that she was moving to Mumbai and would be renting a flat in Goregaon... After getting married in November, I received a message on my mobile phone, reading: ‘Aaj ke baad meri biwi ke sath dikh mat jaana. I love her a lot. And I won’t stop just dragging you to court for adultery. I will make sure your office people and your family are aware that you are roaming around with a married woman’.”

“I showed this message to and her mother and they told me it was fake. I then contacted the sender and found out that she was married and had also filed for a divorce from the man at an Indore court,” the complainant added.

On May 4, 2022, filed a fake case of rape, cheating and assault at the Goregoan police station, he said. “She also contacted my office and told the HR that I was a rapist, and I was sacked. She even demanded money from me,” the man said.

Senior Inspector Bandopant Bansode of Amboli police station said, “We have registered an FIR against the woman and her family members. We are also checking the woman’s rape complaint. The woman and her family are absconding.”

The police suspect she could have cheated more than three people.
