A 40-year-old woman from Gujarat’s Vadodara faced a shocking truth when she found out that the person she married in 2014 hid from her that he underwent a sex change operation to become a man.
According to a report by TOI, the woman filed a complaint at the Gotri Police on Wednesday and accused her husband, Viraj Vardhan, of cheating and unnatural sex. She also named his family members in the FIR.
She told the police that she met Viraj Vardhan, who had earlier identified as Vijaita, through a matrimonial site nine years ago. Her first husband died in a road accident in 2011 and left her with a 14-year-old daughter.
According to the police, they got married in February 2014 in the presence of family members and even went on a honeymoon to Kashmir. “However, the man didn’t consummate the marriage and kept giving excuses for many days. When she pressured him, he claimed that an accident that he had suffered while in Russia some years ago rendered him incapable of having sex,” TOI quoted the police as saying.

The accused told the woman that he would be alright after a minor surgery.
In January 2020, he told her that he wanted to undergo surgery to reduce his weight and went to Kolkata for the procedure. However, he later revealed the truth and said he actually performed a sex-change surgery to implant male organs. The woman said he did not give her any details about the surgery.
She told the police that he started performing “unnatural sex” with her and also threatened her that she would face dire consequences if she talked about it to anyone.
Gotri police inspector, MK Gurjar said the accused, who is a resident of Delhi, has been brought to Vadodara.
