Tribal girl sold by grandmother to a person from Uttar Pradesh, who in turn re-sold her
NAWADA BIHAR: Confirming the growing lust for money over family ties, a 12-year-old tribal girlwas sold by her maternal grandmother for Rs 12,000 to a person from Uttar Pradesh, who in turn re-sold her to yet another associate for the same amount. Meanwhile, the girl delivered a child who did not live beyond three days. She was finally dumped at her maternal grandmother's home. The police have arrested the girl's "mausi" (mother's sister) and four men from UP in this connection.
According to sources, 14-year-old Kiran Kumari, daughter of Rajo Turia of Itpakwa village under Kawaukol police station in Nawada district, was sent to live with her maternal grandmother, Urmila Devi, wife of Bhuneshwar Turia, of Rupabel village under Khaira police station in Jamui district when she was 6 years old so that she could familiarize herself with household chores. But when Kiran attained the age of 11 three years back, her grandmother and "mausi" Gayatri Devi colluded with Sumerlal of Pilibhit district (UP) and sold her in 2009 to Santram, son of Moonglal of Biharipur village in Bareilly district of UP for Rs 12,000. Sumerlal's wife, incidentally, hails from Rupabel village.
After ravishing her for three months, Santram sold her to one, Chetram of Kaboolpur village in Pilibhit district for Rs 13,000. Kiran was physically abused for three consecutive years and gave birth to a child which died within three days of birth. Kiran was finally dumped at her maternal grandmother's place at Rupabel on August 25, 2012. Her grandmother sent her to her daughter, Gayatri Devi's 'sasural' at Bijho village under Kawaukol PS where Gayatri tried to sell her off to one, Dalchand, son of Dodram of Arajidahgal village under Sonegarhi PS under Pilibhit district for Rs 12,000.
But before the girl could be resold yet again to Dalchand, the local police got a whiff of the 'deal' and rescued Kiran. The Kawaukol police arrested Gayatri Devi along with Chetram, Laukiram, Sumerlal and Dalchand on the basis of Kiran's statement.
