The 26-year-old woman was taken back to her relatives.
A 17-year-old man has been arrested by the Indian Orissa State Police for selling his wife to a 55-year-old man, the Hindustan Times reported.
The young man married a 26-year-old woman in July, but a month after the marriage, the newlyweds moved to Rajasthan, where the boy started working in a brick kiln. Later, he returned to his hometown, but without his wife.
When relatives asked where his partner was, he replied that he had fled. The woman’s family did not believe the claim and complained to the police, who soon found some holes in the story.
Eventually it was revealed that her husband had sold it to someone she met in Rajasthan for 180,000 rupees (about $ 2,400). The person said he used the money to buy a smartphone.
But when the police team came to Rajasthan to take the girl home, the locals did not allow it, insisting that the girl had been bought.
“I was able to bring her home with great difficulty,” an official declared.
