CHENNAI: A 37-year-old married woman who was about to marry a much younger man in Ambattur was arrested on Thursday.

Probe shows that she would have married at least 10 men across the State using online matrimonial sites. The woman identified as K V Sindhu aka Gayathri aka Subiksha aka Sundaravalli targeted rich businessmen and was on a conning spree. She was arrested based on a complaint from Srinivasan, a building contractor from Mogappair who was the last man to get married to her.

Srinivasan alleged that the woman had already married four men and was fixing her marriage with Balaji, a youth from Ambattur. She also took Rs 50,000 from him besides five sovereign gold jewellery. According to the complaint, the woman who claimed herself to be a BSC physics graduate, married him in 2014. Srinivasan filed a complaint at Thirumangalam all women police station which summoned the woman.
