A man has been arrested in Mumbai for marrying 14 women, each unaware of his other wives, over two and a half years.
Tushar Waghmare, 40, used matchmaking websites to find his brides.
He was arrested after one caught him living with another and complained to police.
Officers said that Waghmare registered his profile on a website, stating that he was divorced and looking for working Brahmin (upper caste) women who were either divorcees or widows. He claimed to have divorced his wife in 2006.
Waghmare fixed appointments with his targets at one of his rented apartments in the city after visiting profiles of women on marriage websites.
"None of the women or their parents ever thought of doing a background check on him as they would be impressed with his job profile," deputy commissioner of police R M Vhatkar told the Times of India.
Waghmare, who has since been sacked from his job with Air India, earned £946 per month and reportedly took care of all his 14 wives. Three of his wives were professionals and the rest were housewives.
He would spend three consecutive days with each of his wives and then leave on the pretext of attending meetings in different states. This helped him spend an equal amount of time with all his wives.
His last wife, a 29-year-old divorced architect, found him out when she visited him at one of his other homes. Waghmare married her on August 11, and a few days after the honeymoon, she was asked to visit New Delhi on work.
"I was shocked when he told me I could take my own time and return whenever I wanted to. What shocked me even more was when he told me he would not mind at all if I had extramarital affairs. This prompted me to go to his flat in Lokhandwala (a place in Mumbai), where I met a 29-year-old woman who claimed that he married her in April 2009," the woman, who was not named, said in a complaint to the police.
