As hard as it is to believe an Indian women lived with her ‘husband’ before finding out that her ‘man’ was in fact a ‘woman’.

Minati Khatua, 26, of Rourkela, says she and her family were completely taken in by Sitakant Routray, 28.

She said, "He had impressed everyone in my family and they willingly agreed to our marriage."

As part of a traditional Indian marriage Routray received a substantial dowry including an Indica car, gold ornaments and more than £350 in cash.

Suspicions were raised when Routray avoided physical contact.

"I would try hard to find out and confirm his gender but failed repeatedly," Khatua told the Calcutta Telegraph.

"However, one day I managed to force open the bathroom door when he was having a bath. My worst fears came true. He was a woman."

Inspector Jyotirmaya Hota confirmed that police were investigating the case.
