Alcoholic sells wife for Rs2 lakh in Bulandshahr

BULANDSHAHR: A man allegedly sold his wife of six years to some people for Rs 2 lakh who tortured and then gang-raped the woman in Bulandshahr district. Police have lodged an FIR and a manhunt has been launched to nab the culprits.

This incident came to light on Friday when the victim, a native of Sultanpur in Bulandshahr district, narrated her nightmarish experience to senior cops. In her complaint, the victim said that her husband belongs to a well-off family, but he lost everything due to alcoholism. "On December 3, he sold her to five locals for Rs two lakh," a senior police officer said.

The victim said the accused injected her with a sedative and, when she lost consciousness, took her to an isolated place and raped her repeatedly for two days. When she resisted, the victim was tortured and thrashed. The accused told her that as they had bought her, she would have to follow instructions like a slave.

An FIR has been lodged against the victim's husband and five others identified as Sohanpal, Mahender, Ajay, Daljeet and Rammu.

On December 5, the victim managed to escape from the clutches of her captors and went to her parents. She narrated the incident to her family members. "The woman's family had paid a handsome dowry, but all the money was spent by her husband on alcohol. His huge tract of land was also sold due to this habit and when he did not find anything else, he sold his wife," an officer said.
