Moga, October 11

A 30-year-old Moga woman was allegedly sold for Rs 2.50 lakh in Hisar district of Haryana, the local police said here today. A case under Sections 366 and 370 of the IPC has been filed at the Baghapurana police station against ‘groom’ Suleen, who is a resident of Mangali village in Hisar district, and his ‘accomplice’ Pooja Rani of Mahanta Wali Gali in Moga. The victim, identified as Jassi, is yet to be rescued.

Sources said Jassi’s sister Shinder Kaur told her friend Pooja Rani that she was saddled with the responsibility of arranging a match for her younger sister as their parents were long dead. Pooja recommended a family in Hisar and on her insistence, Jassi was married to Suleen in March this year.

A month later, Shinder called up her sister’s family in Mangali village, but was not allowed to speak to her. Sensing trouble, she then decided to visit Jassi. There, she was told by Jassi’s husband that he had “purchased” his wife from Pooja for Rs 2.50 lakh and would not permit her to step out of his home. Shinder’s pleas to allow her to take back her sister fell on deaf ears.

Shinder returned and lodged a complaint with the SSP, Moga. He asked the local DSP to look into the matter, who found the complaint ‘genuine’. Subsequently, a case was registered on the orders of the SSP.
