- 13-year-old woman raped after being offered and forcefully married to 35-year-old guy.
- Mom sells daughter to pay her father’s debt of INR 500,000.
- Mom denies woman’s allegations, says uncle kidnapped her.
A 13-year-old woman in India used to be offered by way of her mom to a 35-year-old guy, who then allegedly raped her, the Hindustan Occasions reported.
Reportedly, the mummy needed to repay a debt of INR 500,000, which is why she offered her daughter.
The police reported that the 13-year-old approached the police herself together with her uncle to document the criticism.
“In her criticism, the lady advised us that she used to be forcefully married to the person on April 20 at a village in Barmer, the place she used to be raped,” the Superintendent of police, Deepak Bhargav, stated.
“She approached her uncle on April 24 and in combination they lodged a criticism,” he added.
The police stated that the minor woman used to be forcefully married to the accused by the use of agents to repay the lady’s father’s debt. The circle of relatives used to be struggling financially as the lady’s father had gave up the ghost 4 years in the past.
The mum, however, rejected the allegations and stated the lady’s uncle had kidnapped her.
“The girl’s allegation does no longer appear true as the lady herself is supporting her uncle’s observation and accusing rape,” stated the SP. “We can give extra main points after an in depth investigation.”
A case has been filed below sections 366A (procuration of a minor), 376(3) (rape of a girl below 16 years of age), and 450 (area trespass) of the Indian Penal Code, knowledgeable Anil Kumar, station area officer, Sadar police station.
“Suitable sections of the Prohibition of Kid Marriage Act can also be added after additional investigation,” he added.
