20 Wives, 20 Fiances: Will It Be 20 Years?

September 21, 1987|From Reuters

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — A Sri Lankan man who married 20 women and was engaged to 20 more has been arrested, the Sunday Observer newspaper reported.

It said a court was told that the 38-year-old man duped the women--including clerks, teachers and a doctor--by using different names and other deceptions.

The paper said a friend who planned to raise bail for the suspect changed his mind in court after finding that his sister-in-law was one of the victims.
