In a brutal end to the dream of a decent marriage, a 19-year-old girl was purchased for Rs 35,000, chained and confined at a house in Porpra village, Haryana, for two weeks.
The girl, a matriculate, was taken nearly a month ago by a broker who had promised her parents that she would be married into a good family. She was then brought to Panipat and sold for Rs 35,000 to one Subhash, who promised to marry her.
The teenager was then taken to Porpra village in Karnal district but was kept in chains following her rejection of Subhash's proposal to marry her. The girl remained in this condition before the police rescued her.
The police produced her before Duty Magistrate Ashwani Kumar on Tuesday. She was medically examined before being produced in the court.
On her request, the court directed the police to handover the girl to her parents in Delhi.
The police also produced Subhash in the court, which remanded him to judicial custody for 14 days.
