Woman marries woman posing as man
|The local police in Orissa’s steel township of Rourkela are searching for a young woman who married another woman by posing as a man. The woman has reportedly fled from the town after the ”wife” registered a cheating case with the police. The incident has become a major topic of discussion in the steel hub.|
|Minati Khatua (27), a resident of Power House Road of Rourkela married one Sitakanta Routray, a resident of sector six of the town, a year back after both fell in love with each other.
While Minati was working as an office assistant with a local NGO, Sitakanta was a salesman by profession and was attached to the local branch of a FMCG company.
Both had a civil marriage after Minati’s family members objected to their relationship.
When she confronted her “husband” on the matter, “he” (Smutimoyee) admitted that “he” had done a mistake. “He” allegedly absconded when “he” realised that Minati would be inform the police about the incident.
Minati has told the police that though they had been living together for more than a year, they never had any physical relationship.
Whenever she made any attempt to get physical with her “husband”, the latter had always dissuaded her saying that she should wait for a few months more as “he” wanted to conduct a puja in a temple in Puri before having a sexual relationship with her.
Not a doubt
Minati also revealed that she had never doubted her husband’s gender as “he” was always wearing men’s clothes and sported a man’s haircut.
The police suspect that Smutimoyee orchestrated the entire marriage to dupe Minati as the former reportedly had already obtained two bank loans in the latter’s name after their marriage.
