Ujjain, MP, May 12 (UNI) An 11-year-old girl was pawned off by her father for a mere Rs 1,200 in this ancient temple town.

Roshan Sathia, from the Sathi community, residing in Juna Mill locality lodged a missing person's report a month ago. Even as a police investigation was underway, some relatives turned up with the victim this afternoon at her home and the matter was exposed.

''It was a family matter and has been settled, so no case was registered. Unfortunately, this particular community has a tradition of pawning off women,'' said Superintendent of Police G Janardan yesterday.
