“I decided to get married to him because he was also a Savarna (upper caste) like me. On April 23 this year, we got married according to the Hindu rituals in Khanpur. Later, we got registered our marriage at the marriage registrar at AMC’s Shahpur office. “After we got settled at our house, I came to know one day that Yash’s surname was Khamar. I also enquired about the surname Khamar and found that it was not a Brahmin surname. Yash had hidden his caste and breached my trust as he lied to me that he was Brahmin,” said Ekta.

When assured of the cheat, Ekta told her parents about the matter who accompanied her to the police station and lodged a complaint against Khamar.
