2:27 pm
women who fall in victim to their trade. most of his work is done in the punjab and the neighboring states of hari ana. some of the work is carried out around may watts in haryana states a predominantly muslim area less than two hours drive from delhi. i mean whatever he says that may work as a hub for the trade and brides problem. as marianne. also done. as. men. once a woman has been sold her status within her new village is defined by the derogatory terms or mulkey meaning a purchased woman. in
2:28 pm
the villages in fields near may want women are often found to be doing the most punishing of manual labor. bugs there is a shortage of women in this region sometimes as few a seven women for every ten men it creates a ready market for bright. arianna state is one of the hot spots for bride trafficking in the country with women being brought in from the far east of the country thousands of kilometers away and it's no coincidence that haryana state also has one of the largest discrepancies in the ratio between men
2:29 pm
and women. but the consequences of this can be devastating. in a small hut next to a local mosque a group of women from nearby villages are gathered to talk about their lives as traffic brides. all of these women say they have been transported to hurry on or from distant parts of rural india taken from their families against their will they claim by traffickers who used a mixture of false promises and violence they were then forcibly sold into marriage some of the many times over. they have been secretly brought together here by one of chef eeks local organizers because i've been told meeting them in their village would make their lives even more dangerous. middle of me don't like. rossley out there they are not going to tell us middle. sadly i am with that idea.

2:33 pm
for marriage has created another social time bomb. according to sociologist rev in the car the demand for brides in certain parts of india is now so strong and the costs of dowry so high that some families afford to cash in on their daughters. because families are poor and you know dowdy means a huge investment. people. often go into debt marrying daughters off and heard this see an opportunity where they'd think that their daughter will go to a prosperous state she will not have to worry about food and you know our. livelihood. jeffie khan is a lone voice trying to fight the trade in traffic brides but proving a woman has being trafficked rather than any said.
