A woman from some other state is gangraped in a village of Rewari district and then sold to some man in Rajsthan for Rs. 40000. This is not an isolated case.
Haryana is a regular mandi for purchase and sale of girls from other states. There is bride deficit in Haryana due to highly adverse sex ratio. Child sex ratio is an important indicator of gender relations. As per 2011 census, child sex ratio in Haryana is 830 i.e. 830 baby girls for 1000 thousand boys. This record is worst not only in India but in whoe of the world. What a shame for Haryana which is presented as No. One Haryana.
This leads to shortage of brides for the adult male population. To meet this shortage girls are bought from distant places like Nepal, Assam, Jharkhand, Madhypradesh etc. by touts who sell them in Haryana to bachelors who have failed to find brides. No body asks for their religion, caste etc. Their life style, dialect, dress etc. are entirely different. They are just instruments to satisfy male lust. There are cases when such a bride is sold at a discount after the male lust is somewhat satisfied. Society is getting dehumanized.
The cause of such an adverse sex ratio is foeticide-killing girls in the womb of their mothers. Our khap panchayats should fight against this instead of interfering into marital relationships.NGOs and other civil society groups too should join this campaign.

A 27-year-old woman from Maharashtra was gang raped and her son brutally murdered by three men in Haryana's Rewari district on Thursday.
The woman's ordeal did not end there as she was later sold off to a man for 40,000 at Alwar in neighbouring Rajasthan.
"The woman was spotted with her two-year-old child at the Rewari railway station on December 9 by a truck driver, Mukesh Kumar. The truck driver lured her by promising to marry her and take them to Khajuri village in the Bawal industrial zone," SP of Rewari, Nazneen Bhasin said.
Kumar then handed over the woman and her child under the custody of his friend Satish Kumar before leaving with his truck. Satish, however, had other plans. Satish sent his family to Rewari on December 11 before he called his friends Hawa Singh and Jaipal Singh to his Khajuri residence. The trio gang raped the woman in an inebriated state in the evening.
More horror was to follow when one of the three men smashed the child to death, fearing his cries would alert the villagers staying near the house. Later, the trio had stuffed the child's body inside a bag to dispose it at a deserted spot.
While Jaipal stayed back at Khajuri village, Satish and Hawa Singh forcibly took the woman to Alwar the next day, where they sold her to a local, identified as Sandeep Kumar, for 40,000. A middleman, Suraj Bhan, helped Satish and Hawa Singh strike the deal with Sandeep.
"We were alerted about the incident by the Khajuri sarpanch. The village chief had become suspicious as Satish went missing without any word. By that time, Satish Kumar and Hawa Singh had taken the victim to Alwar district. Jaipal Singh's arrest at Khajuri village led to the arrest of Sandeep Kumar, Hawa Singh, Satish Kumar and Suraj Bhan from Nangli village on Saturday," the Superintendent of Police said.
The police rescued the victim from the house of Sandeep Kumar in Nangli village while the child's body was recovered from Satish's house in Khajuri village. Jaipal was unable to dispose off the body as he was left alone by his accomplices.
A manhunt has been launched to the sixth accused, Mukesh Kumar, who had handed over the victim and her son to Satish.
The Rewari Police has booked Satish Kumar, Hawa Singh and Jaipal Singh for gang rape and murder while Mukesh Kumar, Suraj Bhan and Sandeep Kumar were booked under the IPC sections relating to kidnapping and human trade at the Bawal police station.

Two Chinese men and two Cambodian women were convicted and sentenced yesterday by Phnom Penh Municipal Court to seven months each in prison for attempting to sell two Cambodian women to Chinese husbands in February. They were also fined $1,000 each.
Judge Keo Mony said Zu Zhisheng, 39, Xu Jing, 34, Lam Na, 45, and Sok Bora, 25, had conspired to send the women, aged 20 and 24, to China.
They were charged with attempting the act of “selling, buying or exchanging a person with purpose”.
“Zu Zhisheng and Lam Na were arrested by our police at Phnom Penh International Airport while they were bringing the victims to the airport in preparation [to go] to China,” said Major Phat Phalla, deputy chief of the Municipal Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Unit, adding that the two other suspects were picked up later that day.
Lawyers for the accused could not be reached for comment yesterday.

SURAT: A 16-year-old tribal girl, who was allegedly sold for Rs 30,000 by her parents, has been rescued in Ahwa town of Dang district.
Two months ago, the girl's parents had sold her to a 21-year-old youth, Ashwin Charola, from Kherva village of Surendranagar district. Last week, she had come to see her parents in her native Bhabkal village.
Two days ago, Charola and his two relatives came to take her back. However, she resisted their attempt. Shockingly, her parents also forced her out of the house and she was taken to the Ahwa bus station to board the bus for Surendranagar. Ugly scenes were witnessed at the bus stand as the girl continued to fight and resist going back.
Meanwhile, police got information about the scuffle and reached the spot. The girl narrated her trauma to police and started begging for protection.
"The girl is not married to the youth. She was sold by her parent for Rs 30,000. As she is a minor, we have booked Charola for rape," said RC Vasava, Saputara sub-inspector.
Police also arrested her father Laxman Bhowar and Charola's two relatives under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act 2012. Her mother Hiraben is absconding.
The skewed sex ratio is forcing youth from Saurashtra to seek girls from tribal areas. Surendranagar has a child (0 to 6 years) sex ratio of 896 per 1,000 boys, while there are 930 women per 1000 men as per 2011 census.
Police said that at least 25 girls from Bhabkal village alone have been married in different villages of Saurashtra.
Sources said the accused youth is from Chuvaliya Koli community and works as farm labourer. His relative Rajesh had also married a tribal girl in the same village a year ago. Rajesh's parents had found this girl for Ashwin.
Due to skewed sex ratio, it is difficult for the Saurashtrian youth to find girl from their own community. However, the grooms look for tribal girls, whose parents let them go for few thousands of rupees.
"There are about six youths in Kherva village married to tribal girls from Dang. There are other villages in the taluka where you will find tribal girls married to the Saurashtrian youth," said a villager.

A 17-year-old girl who had gone missing from Dumaria village in West Bengal on August 5 was rescued in Hathras after the arrest of two kidnappers here on Tuesday.
A gang in West Bengal had sold her to a man, Sanju Singh, 28 in Hathras for Rs. 40,000. He had married her forcibly. Police said this gang was active in selling girls on the pretext of getting them married.
Acting on the FIR of kidnapping lodged by the victim’s mother, the Bengal police raided many places in the city on Tuesday and arrested the two accused. However, Sanju was absconding.
The girl’s family members tried to trace her but failed. After some time, they received a phone call from the victim who told them about the problem she was in.
After the victim’s mother lodged an FIR against unknown persons in Harischandra police station (W Bengal) on August 27 stating that her daughter had been kidnapped and sold, the police arrested a woman, Sundari and a man, Jamir on August 31 and took them on remand.
Sub-inspector Kajal Chatterji of Harishchandra police station came to Hathras along with two women constables. After searching for the missing girl for four days, they contacted the Kotwali Sadar police and began the search operation.
Police said the victim was living with Sanju Singh of Surangpura area. Though cops found the girl, Sanju managed to flee. He is working in a local jam factory.
The victim told police that her uncle Umesh had brought her to Harishchandra railway station on August 5 and sent her with a youth Lalchand. One woman was also with him at that time. Lalchand then sold her to Sanju in Hathras for Rs. 40,000.
The victim alleged that Sanju used to lock her while going for work. One day, she found an opportunity and informed her family members through the cell phone.
Kajal Chatterjee, S-I, Harishchandra police station said, “The police had arrested Jamir of Raghunathganj and Sundari Paharia of Pakur (Jharkhand).”
The police had come to Hathras after taking remand of Sundari.

Dear friends and Guardians,
Im delighted to share that Bride trafficking survivor and head of our programms in Mewat Ghaushia Khan is going to contest Assembly election from Nuh Assembly seat of Mewat to bring the issue of bride trafficking and other forms of VAW into political discussion.
We witnessed a recent controversy made by BJP leader OP Dhankar about importing girls from Bihar for Haryanavi Youths and politicization of “Notion of Honour” by the name of Love Jihad. The political class of Haryana is always an ignorant and highly patriarchal especially for Issues related to women. By contesting this Assembly election we can put this problem in political arena which will may resulted in mass mobilization against the menace of Bride Trafficking and a policy level change.
Ghaushia Khan a Bride trafficking survivor and Anti-trafficking activist is only woman candidate from the Nuh assembly seat. (Watch a fiction story based on her life http://bit.ly/nuhassembly
). She is contesting as Independent candidate with a commitment to raise the Issues of Bride Trafficking, Female infanticide, Domestic violence, Honour crimes and property rights of Women.
Most of you are well aware that EMPOWER PEOPLE was founded to combat Bride trafficking and its contributing factors in Destination and source areas. As of Bride trafficking is a result of many social and historical reasons we are trying to involve people from all sake of life, different stake holders and local community leaders.
We are focusing in social empowerment of Bride trafficking survivors to ensure their safe and secure life in destination area. Hundreds of Paro/ Molki women successfully claimed their property rights and inheritance for their children and enjoying their familial rights (however it is still not satisfactory and we are continuously working to ensure their right).
And to continue our struggle we have decided to contest this assembly election.
Yesterday we started door to door election campaign and street meetings in Nuh. Here is some photograph. https://www.
We need your all supports to ensure our commendable presence in field of action. Please be a part of this noble cause.
