Man ‘steals’ wife’s kidney to cover ‘unpaid’ dowry

BBC

An Indian woman’s husband and brother-in-law have been arrested after she told police they stole one of her kidneys in lieu of a dowry, reports BBC. Local media report that the West Bengal woman’s husband arranged an appendicitis surgery when she was suffering stomach pain two year ago. Late in 2017, two separate medical examinations revealed she was in fact missing one of her kidneys. She alleges that her husband had frequently made demands for a dowry. The payment of dowries - traditionally paid from a bride’s family to a husband’s - has been banned in India since 1961. Speaking to Indian media, the alleged victim, Rita Sarkar, said she had been the victim of domestic abuse over the dowry issue for many years.
