Man arrested after marrying 14 women in just two-and-a-half years


In India, a 40-year-old man has been charged with bigamy after marrying 14 women, in a span of just two-and-a-half years.

Mumbai police arrested airline engineer Tushar Waghmare after five of the women he married registered complaints. The other nine were so embarrassed they chose to remain anonymous, the Times of India reported.

Waghmare, who used matchmaking websites to find his brides, lost his job at Air India after the arrest. Most of his wives were highly educated women who were so taken with his professional qualifications that they did not question his background.

Officials said Waghmare would spend at least three consecutive days with each of his wives and then tell them that he had to travel to other states to attend meetings. This way, he managed to spend time with all of them.
