Greetings from PVCHR.


Please refer to the news in the link and the attached report:

Teenage girl sold thrice by family

Meerut:  In a shocking incident, a teenage girl was allegedly sold thrice for money by her family, police said.

In her complaint, the 18-year-old girl alleged that she was first sold for
one lakh at the age of 15 by her mother, uncle and grandfather to a man named Amit, whom she later married, DIG Prem Prakash said.

Five months after the marriage, her parents started threatening Amit of filing a dowry case against him. After reaching a compromise and taking
1.5 lakh from Amit, they brought her back home, Prakash said.

She was again forcibly married in 2009 to Dheeraj (35), a resident of Kajmabad village in Uttar Pradesh, Prakash added.

She alleged that Dheeraj was also similarly threatened by her family after which he was forced to give
Rs. 60,000 and leave her, he said.

Finding it a lucrative business, her family again sold her to more people in Dehradun for
one lakh. She escaped on June 20 from Dehradun and came to Meerut, Prakash said.

Sir, on behalf of PVCHR, I request you to look into the matter and take necessary action.


With regards,
