Jaipur: Jiyaram Jat, popularly known as 'Jamai Raja' in Rajasthan police records, accused of sleeping with 55 brides, died on June 11.
Jat, 54, died in Nimbalkot village of Sindhar in western Rajasthan’s Barmer district. He was arrested in 2004 and by that time 55 girls had fallen prey to his lust for money and sex, according to Hindustan Times report.
Jat never married and stayed alone throughout his life.
The report stated that Jat used to target girls, belonging to single family and were ready for 'gauna' (the practice of sending female child brides to their husbands when they become adults).
How girls fell into his trap
The 'Jamai Raja', as he was commonly known, he used to target girls by visiting them at their homes while the other family members had gone out for some work.
Apparently, Jat used to introduce himself as the girl's husband knowing well that marriages in most of the cases had taken place in childhood, the girl would fail to recognise him.
Thereafter, Jat would flee away with the jewellery and cash after spending the night with his victim.
According to police, in many cases, families didn't file report fearing defamation in society.
What led to his arrest
Jiyaram Jat was trying to pounce on his 56th prey in 2013 when he was arrested by the Patodi police. According to 'HT' report, Jat kept low after his 2004 arrest.
