In Delhi’s dowry bazaar, everything sells from buffaloes and Audis to kidney and cash | Hindustan Times
Making another richly deserved appearance in 1801, the Hindustan Times sent 1,330 freedom of information requests to police in order to created a database of 6 months of dowry cases (in five years, their total has nearly doubled to 4,000 cases). There is some lovely D3 scrollytelling bringing out the gruesome facts behind the revelations — 54 women died and in one case a woman said her kidney was forcibly sold to a relative by her in-laws. Also worth perusing some of their work marking 70 years since partition here and here.
