On Wednesday, Jan 30, 2008. CNNIBN reported about the news about the dowry

” In a shocking case of dowry harassment, a Chennai-based woman was forced to flee from US and take refuge with her family in Tamil Nadu. Muthumari Bhadrinath says she escaped her husband’s torture after eight years of marriage.

Finally in the safety of her family, the 38-year-old has now filed a complaint with the Chennai police.

“He abused me physically, beat me for 15-20 minutes daily. He bit me on my hands. When I requested him to take me to a doctor, he took me there and told the doctor it was a bee bite,” she says.

With no help in America, she flew back to Chennai, leaving her four-year-old daughter behind. She says her daughter suffers from a heart disease.

Now, with the help of Congress leader Jayanthi Natarajan, Muthumari is beginning her fight to get her daughter back.

“I’m going to definitely move that embassies of all countries should have a hotline number where women of Indian origin can contact them if they’re in trouble and seek help,” says Natarajan.

The Chennai police say say they have contacted Muthumari’s husband in the United States and will file an FIR.”

 Even tolerating for eight years was too much. Such cases should be reported immediately.

On Wednesday,in Delhi, December 19, 2007, CNNIBN reported about the sex racket.

” The national capital is fast gaining the dubious distinction as a hub of underage prostitution racket.

Minor girls are being pimped as “virgins” for huge prices to customers from across India and the market is thriving. Experts say the alarming trend is common to most metro cities but Delhi ‘s underbelly seems to be the murkiest.

A CNN-IBN Special Investigation Team went undercover, posing as customers and found child traffickers offering young minor girls for a price without a care for the law.


The first girl on offer was Payal (name changed), a underage girl being touted by a pimp called Mukesh at a shop in south Delhi. Mukesh regularly “supplies” underage, virgin girls to customers in Delhi.

Their “going rates” are on his fingertips. Given below is an excerpt from a conversation CNN-IBN had with Mukesh.


Mukesh: Uska bahut mota paisa lagega. (Payal will be very expensive)

CNN-IBN: Kitna lagega? (How much?)

Mukesh: Kam se kam 80-90 hazar rupay lagega. (At least Rs 80,000 to Rs 90,000.)

A week later, Rahul, Mukesh’s right hand man got Payal to meet the SIT team again and repeatedly assured that she was a minor.

Rahul: (I assure you she is young, but you should be the only one having intercourse with her, otherwise there’ll be trouble and I will be in trouble.)

CNN-IBN: Khoon nikelaga? (Will she bleed?)

Rahul: Haan. Nahi niklega toh paisey ley jao. Rs 1000 de dena. (Yes. She will. If she does not, you’ll get your money back. Just pay us Rs 1,000 in that case.)

During the investigation, the SIT found there was a huge demand for underage girls in metros like Delhi.

CEO of NGO Naz Foundation, Anjali Gopalan explains the disturbing trend. “Minor girls are being increasingly pushed into the flesh market because many men think they will be safe from being infected with HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases,” she says.


That’s not all. With girl children fetching up to Rs 1 lakh, traffickers like Rahul and Mukesh admitted family members were often prepared to push their girls into the flesh trade. “

The goon was later taken to the Ajni police station.

Senior police inspector Ratansingh Yadav has claimed that the woman, who was reportedly ‘rescued’ by public, had denied that she was raped on the hospital premises on Wednesday night. “The woman in question had also furnished a written declaration denying rape to police,” said inspector Yadav.

Another officer of the Ajni police station claimed that the goon was questioned but was not arrested. “He seems to be unwell and mentally deranged,” said the officer. According to sources, the woman was under stress after the incident and had declined to report the matter for fear of social stigma.”
