A monstrous incident of a drunk man allegedly raping his daughter and then selling her to a clerk has come to light in Madhya Pradesh’s Chhatarpur area. According to the reports, the victim was forced to stay with the clerk as his wife. The police have arrested the father and have initiated a probe into this matter.
The girl, identified as Kishori, told the media that her family, including her father, mother, grandfather, grandmother, and paternal aunt, sold her for Rs 60,000 to a 50-year-old clerk and his brother to another family for Rs 6,000. Reportedly, the 16-year-old used to work at brick kilns as a clerk’s wife in Hamirpur.
When asked how she escaped the trap, Kishori revealed to the media that she had discreetly obtained his maternal uncle’s phone number from his father and told him about the whole scenario.
Her maternal uncle then filed a complaint at the Maudaha Police Station on September 24 and brought the victim back home. As per the reports, the girl, in a statement, alleged that her father used to drink and then rape her. She even informed her mother about this, but she asked her to ignore it.
Kishori added that her father had threatened to kill her if she went ahead and filed a complaint against him. She then claimed that her father had sold her to a clerk. Kishori also said that she wants her father to be hanged to death.
Furthermore, her brother also told the media that he was sold to a family for Rs 6,000, where he used to go every day for donkey grazing.
The case has been registered at the Kotwali Nagar Police Station and has nabbed the man. Speaking about this matter, in-charge Shyam Babu Shukla told the media that the case is from two different villages. She said they would lodge the complaint as soon as they received the application from both villages.
