Bizarre! Indian bride discovers husband is a woman

Bizarre! Indian bride discovers husband is a woman

As funny as the title may seem, there is no comedic denouement for this unfortunate Indian bride. She lived with her husband for a year before discovering the very naked and painful truth.

Minati Khatua, aged 26, of Orissa, India, and her family were completely fooled by the groom, Sitakant Routray, who received a substantial dowry as is traditional in India composed of an Indica car, gold ornaments and more than £350  (about US $575) in cash.

My husband is a woman!

“He had impressed everyone in my family and they willingly agreed to our marriage,” said Khatua, reportedly.

No matter how much she wanted to believe her new husband, she grew more and more suspicious after the wedding when he constantly avoided any physical contact with her using the pretext of a religious vow.

“I would try hard to find out and confirm his gender but failed repeatedly… One day I managed to force open the bathroom door when he was having a bath and my worst fears became true. He was a woman,” she told the press.

"I thought he was devout and respectful of me," Ms Khatua said. "I always try and unpack that he was a man, but failed many times. What was feared has been proved; she is a woman," she added talking about how she discovered her husband is a woman.

Local police are investigating the most bizarre case.

The bogus groom is nowhere to be found at the present time, having absconded with a car and a jeep, which were bought with loans acquired from an account in Ms Khatua’s name.

As Daily Telegraph reported, "It is also being reported that Routray has now vanished with a car and a jeep, which were bought with loans taken from a bank account in Ms Khatua's name."

It seems amazing that this bizarre charade could have gone on for a year, but be that as it may, one can only hope that Mr. Wonderful gets his (or in this case, her) just desserts.
