A woman who posed off as man and married another woman in Matara was produced before the Matara Magistrate’s Court today.
The woman had married a year back, but had kept it a secret to the woman she married until recently.
After it was revealed that a woman was posing off as a man she had left the house. Few weeks later she was arrested for a robbery in the Kadawatha area which she had carried out again posing off as a male.
On further questioning police found that the person arrested was a female and traced her origins to Matara.
The woman was given bail by the Matara Magistrate, but since no one was present on behalf of her to pay the bail money, she was re-remanded.
