he can be prosecuted us 494 of IPC and 1st wife can file divorce petition or maintence petition us 125 crpc or sec 18 of ha&m act. 2nd marriage is null & void marriage 2nd wife has no right as like 1st wife

you used the word person.

first marriage is valid in the eyes of law, 2nd invalid.

spouse of 1st marriage can sue the other spouse.

for details read the ipc, 'offences relating to marriage' sec 493  to  498a.

you will get the text at lci and net.
