How inhumane can be parents to stoop so low for society or even money? Disgusting it is to even think about it. But child trafficking is still an important issue among the citizens of India.
Recently, such an incident occurred in Vadodara, Gujarat, A 17-year-old pregnant teen was sold to her lover for 50k by her own parents. Unimaginable isn’t it? According to the Times of India, The parents and her rumored lover were held up after the girl made allegations against them on child trafficking in shinor taluka of the district.
It was stated in the reports of Times Now, that the girl and his alleged boyfriend Vikas Vasava were in a live-in relationship and their parents knew about it. Later on, when she got pregnant, her family refused and denied her to live in with them and instead they offered a deal to Vikas to take the custody of the girl, and they sold their pregnant teen daughter for 50k to him.
In spite of knowing the fact about her father’s agreement, the girl did not speak up to anyone about it, until the paramour asked the girl to leave and go back to her parents. Feeling helpless, she approached and filed an FIR against the paramour and her parents. According to reports, a relative of the girl instigated her father to extort more money from Vikas.
The police officials after the inquiry told that the relative of the victim’s father had told him that Rs 50k was a very small amount and he should have demanded a latter amount of 5lakhs as the girl was still a minor, And so the man demanded more money from Vasava to keep his daughter.
Nevertheless, Vikas Vasava denied paying any more money as he was just working as casual labor but the parents were constantly pressurizing him. So he desperately asked his live-in partner to leave and return to his parent’s place. However, the paramour and his parents are now detained and lodged in a quarantine center.
And the girl is safe and secure! Well, let us know, What should be done with those child traffickers or the so-called parents, in the comments below.
