Sold as in the time of slave-owners, 3 sisters in India end their lives
The story comes from India. It is tragic because it happens in 2022, as in the time of slave-owners.
Three daughters - 25-year-old Kalu Meena, 23-year-old Mamta Meena and 20-year-old Kamlesh Meena - were sold for marriage to wealthy landowners because their parents were poor.
All three have committed suicide today, along with their young children. Two of them were pregnant, while the older sister had two children, a 4-year-old girl and another 3-week-old. They all went into a well, but before the tragic act, they left a message on Whatsapp: “Better to die than endure daily torture… We are leaving, so everyone else will be happy. "The reason for our choice is our fathers-in-law."
The eldest of three sisters, Kalu Meena, faced with violence in her husband's family had tried several times to return home to her father, but without success. The girl had tried to persuade the father not to make mistakes with her two sisters, as she did with him, but they had the same fate.
According to media reports, the girls' husbands and even their relatives beat them regularly.
The father of three girls, after discovering that his daughters were missing, embarked on a desperate search until he realized what had happened.
The spouses of the three sisters and all their close relatives have already been arrested.
