Indian Man married 15 Women in Matrimonial Scam f

over a dozen women fell victim to his lies.

Police in Mysore, Karnataka have arrested a man who scammed women he met on matrimonial websites by posing as an engineer or doctor and marrying them.

According to officers, he married at least 15 women since 2014 and has children with at least four of them.

The man has been identified as Mahesh Nayak, a resident of Banashankari in Bengaluru.

He was arrested after a software engineer from Mysore, whom he married earlier in 2023, filed a complaint.

A police team was soon formed to track Nayak down. He was eventually arrested in Tumakuru.

Another woman approached the police, claiming that she had also been conned by Nayak.

Police said Nayak used matrimonial sites to find his victims, posing as a doctor or engineer to entice them.

In actual fact, Nayak was a school dropout.

Nayak even went as far as to set up a bogus clinic in Tumakuru to bolster his claim of being a doctor. He also employed a nurse.

However, his poor English language skills raised suspicions, with many women rejecting his marriage proposals after recognising it as a red flag.

Despite this, over a dozen women fell victim to his lies.

Nayak was arrested following a complaint by a software engineer.

The woman told police that Nayak had harassed her for money so that he can establish a clinic.

When she refused, he fled with Rs. 800,000 (£7,500) worth of jewellery and Rs. 14 Lakh (£14,000) in cash.

Based on her complaint, an investigation was launched.

After his arrest, police said Nayak rarely met his wives but managed to persuade them to hand over money before ceasing contact with them.

It was also discovered that the victims were well-educated professionals who did not rely on Nayak for financial support.

But this financial independence, combined with a fear of embarrassment and social stigma, prevented them from reporting the matrimonial fraud earlier.

This meant Nayak was able to continue scamming unsuspecting women without the fear of the police coming after him.

The investigation also revealed that Nayak’s father had also filed an attempt-to-murder case against him.

With Nayak now in custody, police are urging any other victims to come forward and report their experiences.

They are working diligently to ensure justice for all those affected by the serial conman.
