The seventeen-year-old reported her parents' inhuman deal with the police timely.

A relative also advised the father to bargain for more, because Rs. 50,000 was a very cheap price while his 17-year-old girl was still considered a minor. They should take advantage of this point to ask for more money. And the father did it.

However, before they could finish the inhuman deal, police have been informed and rescued the unfortunate pregnant girl. Her merciless parents and the paramour have been kept in a quarantine center to wait for the decision from the authorities.

Trafficked women and girls in India are forced to marriage or sexual exploitation.

Human trafficking in India can happen to either men or women, adults or children for multi-purposes. While men are mostly sold for labour, women and small girls are trafficked both within and outside the country for sexual exploitation.

To lure people into their traps, human traffickers often use fraudulent acts, forcing their victims to work for them to pay debt. Some are kidnapped or sold by relatives, or friends.

However, the story of Gujarat pregnant girl was among rare cases sold by her own parents who only care about the amount of money they can get over their daughter's life.
