Jyoti Amge cries foul over fake wedding pictures

Jyoti Amge, 23, the world’s smallest woman according to Guinness World Records, on Monday lodged a complaint against a person of Indian origin from the U.S. for circulating pictures of his alleged marriage with her.

Ms. Amge and her family members lodged a complaint against the person at the Cyber Crime Wing of Nagpur police on Monday. In 2011, at 62.8 cm, Ms. Amge was declared shorter than the previous title holder, Bridgette Jordan of the U.S.

Archana, Ms. Amge’s sister, said, “For two-three days, some pictures have been circulated on social media about the alleged marriage of my sister to a person of Indian origin in the U.S. We don’t even know his name. He is misusing those pictures. We want to clarify that Jyoti is unmarried.”

Ms. Archana said the pictures were clicked by the man during one of her sister’s tours to the U.S.
