BEIJING: In an appalling case of human trafficking in China, a criminal gang bought mentally-impaired women from their families promising to marry them to well-off families but held them in a pigsty in northern China, where they were sold as brides for about $ 1,660 to older men.
Ten women were sold by the gang based in Shandong province over two years, with the buyers paying up to 100,000 yuan ($ 1,660) for each "bride", Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported.
The women were bought from their families in Guangdong province and Guangxi region of south China for 3,000 to 5,000 yuan with a promise that they would be married to well-off families, the report said citing official Chinese media.
The case was cracked after two men travelling with a mentally-impaired woman on a train from Guangxi to northern China attracted the attention of railway police. The men were arrested and it led officers to the rest of the gang.
China can sell anything. Where is India? Busy doing bla bla
chines can do anything
you can never imagine
I think more women are sold in India, there is gang who abduct young girls and sell them in Haryana, such cases are often come to ligh, many youngs girls of Pakistan sent to UAE for job but they were sold to rich Shaiks. Govts. of such countries should take drastic actions to end this crisis. Biggest reason behind this is poverty of women and easy money for anti socials.
I am happy. There is somebody worse than us!
China is fast in learning from peaceful all weather Paki friends
The girls are probably mentally-impaired by deliberate maltreatment. China should have the NCW
