She told the team that she used to live with her parents in Bihar after her divorce. There she befriended a neighbour. But as her parents were against their marriage, she left their home and went to Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh in the hope that the man, who worked in the district, would marry her.

He would but if she paid him. That was when she came to Delhi and decided to sell one of her kidneys at a government hospital.
