A Bengaluru man who married women he met online by pretending to be an engineer or doctor was detained by Mysuru city police on Sunday. Officers believe he has had at least 15 wives, four children, and 15 marriages since 2014.

Mahesh K. B. Nayak, 35, a resident of Banashankari in Bengaluru, has been named the accused. He was detained due to a complaint made by the Mysuru-based software engineer he married earlier this year. The police quickly assembled a team to find him and managed to capture the suspect in Tumakuru.

According to Bengaluru authorities, the accused frequently claimed to be a doctor, engineer, or civil contractor despite having only completed Class 5 of his education. Among the women he married, four had children with him. Another woman has also come forward, claiming to be his victim.

In order to support his claim that he was a doctor, Nayak allegedly even established a fictitious clinic in Tumakuru and hired a nurse. However, many of his potential victims turned down his marriage proposal because of his poor command of the English language.

The complainant in the case alleged that Nayak had harassed her for money to establish a clinic. The victim said that when she refused, he fled with her jewellery and cash. Interestingly, most of Nayak’s wives are financially independent professionals, and they refrained from filing complaints due to embarrassment and fearing social stigma.

A police officer said the investigation revealed that Nayak’s father had also filed an attempt-to-murder case against him.
