A man with severe alcoholism tried to buy a bottle of alcohol but he didn’t have enough money on him. To solve the problem, the man (whose name was announced – Krishnaiah – and the age – 40 years) decided to auction the six-year-old daughter who was with him.

The girl was sold for 1,000 rupees to a man who would have been identified as a certain Mohd Bash.

The Lakkireddypalle police, the Indian town where the incident happened, received information about what was happening, and intervened immediately. However they arrived shortly after the auction ended. The agents immediately arrested the father. The buyer, realising that the purchase could get him into trouble, left the child nearby and fled.
