Back in 2017, a then 23-year-old Jyoti filed a complaint against a man who started circulating photos of his reported marriage with her.

"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," Jyoti's sister Archana said, according to The Hindu. "We don’t even know his name. He is misusing those pictures. We want to clarify that Jyoti is unmarried.”
