Beltangady, Apr 20: A married woman from the taluk had gone missing on April 7 this year from her home. The police who began to investigate the case were baffled upon finding out that she had deserted her husband and children to marry a youth whom she got to know through Facebook, and settled down with him in Kerala.
The lady, who is aged 34, was employed in an educational institution. Her husband works as rubber tapper. She has a daughter who studies in ninth standard, and another daughter, who is in fourth standard. She is well qualified and had opened Facebook account by faking her name.
After opening Facebook account in fake name and giving her age therein as 24, the woman came in contact with many. In course of time, she got acquainted with a 27-year-old youth from Koothuparamba Kaitheri in Kannur. The friendship soon blossomed into mutual love, and she developed a huge crush on him. Arrangement were made to marry the youth in the office sub-registrar in Kerala. But she needed to produce birth certificate which had to match with the age and name she had furnished in Facebook. So she pasted her photograph on a tenth standard marks of a card belonging to a teacher whose name matched with her fake identity and provided it to the authorities.
The woman got married to the youth from Kerala. A team of police from the station here, who got to know about the missing woman's current whereabouts, visited the village where she is living with her second husband. While her first husband has been insisting on getting her back, she is not prepared to desert her latest husband. The work of bringing her back has been begun, and her lover in Kerala has now got to know about her fraud after police visited his place along police personnel from Kerala.
It is gathered that some villages in Kerala, particularly in Kannur district, are known as 'Party Gramam' or 'Party village' which means that CPM has firm grip on what is going on in these villages. Even the police seek the nod of party activists to enter such villages as part of their duty. Kerala police had obtained permission from the party activists to visit this village too as is customary there.
Some sources say that Kerala police did not extend the cooperation expected of them to their Karnataka counterpart in undertaking investigation and sending the woman back, in spite of being aware that the woman had violated law by marrying for the second time without divorcing her husband, and also by providing fake certificate as identity proof.
