Man sells girlfriend for $6,000, buyer rapes and chains her in cave
This 16-year-old teen girl from Guangxi, China, paid a terrible price for falling in love with the wrong man.
Brought up by her grandparents, the girl - known only as Xiaowei - had trouble making ends meet.
Her father died from illness and her mother disappeared when she was a child. So she dropped out of school in June to work.
That's when she met and fell in love with a man, 25.
The man, surnamed Liu, became her boyfriend. But after less than two months dating, he sold her for RMB$30,000 (S$6,100), Chinese press reported last month.
Raped and chained in cave
Xiaowei's nightmare continued: The buyer and other men took turns to rape her, while locking her in a cave for more than 10 days, China’s He Fei Zai Xian reported.
The victim sought help from the public when the buyer brought her to a market last month.
Police arrested four men for their involvement in trafficking young girls.
