 20-Year-Old Pak Woman Auctioned in Public for 2,70,000 Rupees
In a shameful and bizarre incident, a 20 year old girl was sold in an open auction for 2,70,000 rupees in Badani Bhutto village here.

According to reports, the girl named, Azizan, was sold off by her brothers in an open auction where a 50-year old man, Bilawal Bhutto, emerged as the highest bidder and bought the girl.

The girl is said to have been abandoned by her husband, and was living with her brothers along with her two children.

Later, Azizan was married to Bilawal, who initially paid 2,10,000 rupees as token money. The groom will take the bride to his house only after paying the rest of the amount.

The total auction money would be equally distributed among all the brothers of the girl, The Daily Times reported.

A large number of people had gathered for the auction, but no one objected to the shocking act, as everybody appeared to be interested in purchasing the helpless girl.

It is ironical that in a country where a women was elected as the Prime Minister on two occasions (Benazir Bhutto, 1988-90 and 1993-96), girls are still being treated as mere objects, despite successive governments claiming to have done much to empower the weaker sex in the country.
