Thane police constable found guilty in departmental inquiry for getting married seven times, without giving divorce to his first wife
In a dramatic irony of security and crime, a 50 year-old constable attached to the Manpada police station in Thane has been suspended by the top officials of the Thane city police, after he was found guilty in a departmental inquiry for getting married seven times.
The officer Suryakant Kashinath Kadam, serving as constable at the Manpada police station has been charged of allegedly misusing power by being involved in seven marriages, and even worse, without giving a divorce to either of them. An inquiry in the matter was ordered, and Kadam was found guilty.
According to the suspension order, in which Kadam's alleged seven wives' names have been mentioned, it indicates that two wives had died in 1995 and 1998 respectively. Constable Kadam had first got married to Swati Suryakant in 1986 and six years later, he got married to a lady identified as Prachita in a Temple at Kolhapur.
Kadam's desire to have more wives did not stop there. Year after year, he seemed to getting into new relations. After his second marriage, he married a lady for the third time with the name Kamlabai in 1993, who died decades ago. Two years later, in 1995, he got married to Sharvari, who reportedly died.
However, again in 1998, constable Kadam was part of another marriage, and legally got married to Swapnali alias Jaya with whom he spent around ten years. Kadam then, getting involved in marriage for the sixth time, married a lady identified as Hemlata in 2007 and the marriage lasted for seven years.
In 2014, he married a lady with the name, Vanita.
According to Manpada police sources, the actions of constable Kadam prove that the accused Kadam has been misusing his power, and even remarrying genuinely has proven illegal as Kadam failed to give any of them a divorce. After a thorough inquiry and evidences collected against him, Kadam was suspended with immediate effect from January 2, last week.
