Indian Twin Sisters marry the Same Man f

"they couldn't imagine parting ways after marriage."

Indian twin sisters married the same man in a ceremony in Solapur, Maharashtra.

The matter came to light when videos of the unique wedding circulated on social media.

It attracted the attention of the police, resulting in trouble for the groom.

A complaint was filed by a local resident against the groom Atul Uttam Autade, accusing him of bigamy.

The sisters were from Mumbai while Atul resided in Solapur.

It was reported that the twin sisters decided to marry the same man as they could not bear to live separately after marriage.

Police officials said: “The girls were living with their mother after their father passed away a few years ago.

“During this time, Atul came close to the two young women.

“The two sisters reportedly decided to wed the same man as they couldn’t imagine parting ways after marriage.”

Despite the strange request, their family consented.

According to the police complaint, Atul tied the knot with Rinky Padgaonkar at around 12:30 pm. During the same wedding ceremony, he married her sister Pinky.

The weddings were held at Galande Hotel.

The complainant found the marriage objectionable.

Based on the viral video, a complaint was registered.

Shirish Sardeshpande, Solapur Rural Superintendent of Police, said:

“A non-cognisable offence has been lodged. We will take the court’s permission and proceed ahead with further investigation.

“The law states that a person can marry only one woman at a time.

“We have preliminary information that both the sisters are close and wanted to stay together. Further investigation is underway.”

The video showed the twin brides trying to throw a garland over their husband while guests cheered.

Lawyer Harshad Nimbalkar said:

“Whether the marriage is legal or not has to be checked as per the Marriage Act.

“The objection to this kind of marriage has to come from the first wife.”

“We need to first find out whether all the marriage-related rituals took place or not.”

Akluj Police Station in-charge Arun Sugavkar said:

“The bridegroom has a tours and travels business in Mumbai and the wedding was organised by him in his hometown.

“Since the complaint was registered only yesterday (December 3), we are yet to divulge the contact details of the bridegroom.”

Nana Galande, owner of the Galande Hotel, said:

“Both families had approached to organise the wedding at the hotel.

“I spoke to both the brides and the bridegroom and they gave their mutual consent. I have also taken their identity card details that includes Aadhaar and PAN cards.”
