Six women seek permission to sell off kidneys to raise blood money for husbands' release
As is said that you can go to any length, when pushed to wall. The same seems true for these women, who in a curious but tragic case have approached the SHRC to seek permission to sell off their kidneys, so that they can raise money to save their husbands.

SIX POOR women from Kareemnagar have approached the Andhra Pradesh State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) seeking permission to sell their kidneys to raise blood money to release their husbands lodged in jails in Dubai.

The women who are demanding to sell their kidneys in a petition have clarified that they lack the resources to fund the release of their husbands. All their husbands were working in a construction company in Dubai and were convicted of murdering a Nepali security guard by a local court. They  have all been awarded rigorous imprisonment for a period of 24 years.

The wife of one of the accused, in this NNIS video, said, “Now I will sell my kidney to get the money. Whatever I can do I will do as I don't have any land, money or anything else and can't do anything. I am helpless. They are not helping us so I have decided to sell my kidney and get back my husband from Dubai.” The women who had initially spoken to the dead guard's wife for seeking pardon for the crime under laws prevalent in Dubai were successful in convincing her, but she asked for a sum of 15 lakhs in Indian rupees as blood money.

One of the lawyers also confirmed the same and added, “They have to pay a sum of 15 lakh rupees in penalty and if they are able to pay that sum their husbands should be released. But these six families they do not have any money or land. They are already suffering and have requested the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh for help but the government is not responding.”

Claiming that they did not have resources to raise the money and their request were not granted by the Central Government, the victim's wives then approached the SHRC seeking its nod to sell their kidneys.
