Kaur conspired with several others to carry out the crime.
An Indian woman has been arrested for marrying four men without divorcing them. It was part of a scheme where she married them for money.
Five associates, including family members, were also arrested for their roles in the fraud.
It was reported that the woman, a resident of Moga, Punjab, used to demand millions of rupees from her husbands by blackmailing them.
Once she married them, she would threaten to file false cases of rape and harassment against them if they did not hand her some money.
The woman was identified as Amandeep Kaur, also known as Rajinder Kaur.
Kaur’s crimes came to light when her fourth husband, Kamaljit Singh, filed a police complaint against her.
Kaur had filed a dowry harassment case against Kamaljit in 2016, which is currently under trial in the court. She had demanded Rs. 10 Lakh (£10,600) but he refused, which led to the false case being registered.
ASI Gurdev Singh explained that the complainant registered a statement on December 5, 2019.
In his statement, Kamaljit revealed his ordeal and said that shortly after his marriage to Amandeep in 2016, he found out that she was married to three others.
It was discovered that Kaur first married Sarbjit Singh and had a 10-year-old son with him.
She went on to marry Chandigarh resident Iqbal Singh without divorcing Sarbjit. Iqbal worked for the Punjab Police at the time.
Kaur then married Anil Kumar, of Haryana, before marrying Kamaljit.
Kamaljit said that he eventually found out that Kaur conspired with several others to carry out the crime.
She would target young men and befriend him before convincing him to marry her. Kaur would then demand money from them.
If they did not pay her a sufficient amount, she threatened to implicate them in false rape or harassment cases.
Kamaljit said that in such situations, the victims were forced to hand over the money to avoid being arrested for false crimes.
He alleged that he met Kaur, who claimed to be called Rajwinder. She gave him a choice of getting married to her or giving her Rs. 20 Lakh (£21,000). He chose to marry her and they tied the knot in August.
Despite the marriage, she blackmailed him out of Rs. 10 Lakh.
On December 14, 2016, Kaur filed a false case of dowry harassment against Kamaljit.
He revealed that the case was still under trial. Following his statement, an investigation was launched.
After more than a month of searching for her, the Indian woman was arrested on January 29, 2020.
Her associates were also arrested. They were identified as Amandeep’s cousin Bubblejit Kaur, Labh Singh, Sukhpal Kaur, Narinder Kaur and her husband Kashmir Singh.
