Sangeeta is a young girl from Chunar, Uttar Pradesh. Her father is a Stone Carver. At the tender age of 14, because of their poor financial condition, her father arranged her marriage to a groom who was mentally unwell. As Sangeeta herself had a burnt body, the groom’s family did not object. She later ran away from her matrimonial home because of unwanted sexual advances by her father-in-law.
