Twin sisters from Maharashtra marry same man; groom booked


Mumbai: In an unusual arrangement, twin sisters from Mumbai married the same man in a ceremony held in Maharashtra’s Solapur district, police said on Sunday.

Videos of the wedding that took place in Malshiras tehsil on Friday have gone viral on social media.

After the wedding video went viral on social media, netizens were concerned whether this marriage was valid or not and if it was allowed under the Hindu Marriage Act or not. Both the sisters decided to get married to a man named Atul, as they had been living together in the same house since childhood.

Based on a complaint, a non-cognisable (NC) offence under Section 494 (marrying again during lifetime of husband or wife) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered against the groom at Akluj police station, an official said.

As per the complaint, the man married the 36-year-old twin sisters who are IT professionals.

The groom, Atul, is a resident of Malshiras taluka. He has a travel agency business in Mumbai. The girls lived with their mother after their father’s death. Atul became closer to Rinki and Pinky after their mother fell ill, and the sisters used to take his car to take their mother to the hospital.
