Tripoli, Libya (CNN) — “Eight hundred,” says the auctioneer. “900 … 1,000 … 1,100 …” Sold. For 1,200 Libyan dinars — the equivalent of $800. 
Not a used car, a piece of land, or an item of furniture. Not “merchandise” at all, but two human beings.

One of the unidentified men being sold in the grainy cell phone video obtained by CNN is Nigerian. He appears to be in his twenties and is wearing a pale shirt and sweatpants.
He has been offered up for sale as one of a group of “big strong boys for farm work,” according to the auctioneer, who remains off camera. Only his hand — resting proprietorially on the man’s shoulder — is visible in the brief clip.
After seeing footage of this slave auction, CNN worked to verify its authenticity and traveled to Libya to investigate further. 
Carrying concealed cameras into a property outside the capital of Tripoli last month, we witness a dozen people go “under the hammer” in the space of six or seven minutes. 
“Does anybody need a digger? This is a digger, a big strong man, he’ll dig,” the salesman, dressed in camouflage gear, says. “What am I bid, what am I bid?”
Buyers raise their hands as the price rises, “500, 550, 600, 650 …” Within minutes it is all over and the men, utterly resigned to their fate, are being handed over to their new “masters.”
After the auction, we met two of the men who had been sold. They were so traumatized by what they’d been through that they could not speak, and so scared that they were suspicious of everyone they met.

Crackdown on smugglers

Each year, tens of thousands of people pour across Libya’s borders. They’re refugees fleeing conflict or economic migrants in search of better opportunities in Europe.
Most have sold everything they own to finance the journey through Libya to the coast and the gateway to the Mediterranean.
But a recent clampdown by the Libyan coastguard means fewer boats are making it out to sea, leaving the smugglers with a backlog of would-be passengers on their hands.
So the smugglers become masters, the migrants and refugees become slaves.

Migrants rescued from the Mediterranean arrive at a naval base in Tripoli in October.
The evidence filmed by CNN has now been handed over to the Libyan authorities, who have promised to launch an investigation.
First Lieutenant Naser Hazam of the government’s Anti-Illegal Immigration Agency in Tripoli told CNN that although he had not witnessed a slave auction, he acknowledged that organized gangs are operating smuggling rings in the country.
“They fill a boat with 100 people, those people may or may not make it,” Hazam says. “(The smuggler) does not care as long as he gets the money, and the migrant may get to Europe or die at sea.”
“The situation is dire,” Mohammed Abdiker, the director of operation and emergencies for the International Organization for Migration, said in a statement after returning from Tripoli in April. “Some reports are truly horrifying and the latest reports of ‘slave markets’ for migrants can be added to a long list of outrages.” 
The auctions take place in a seemingly normal town in Libya filled with people leading regular lives. Children play in the street; people go to work, talk to friends and cook dinners for their families.
But inside the slave auctions it’s like we’ve stepped back in time. The only thing missing is the shackles around the migrants’ wrists and ankles.

Deportation ‘back to square one’

Anes Alazabi is a supervisor at a detention center in Tripoli for migrants that are due to be deported. He says he’s heard “a lot of stories” about the abuse carried out by smugglers.

“I’m suffering for them. What I have seen here daily, believe me, it makes me feel pain for them,” he says. “Every day I can hear a new story from people. You have to listen to all of them. It’s their right to deliver their voices.”
One of the detained migrants, a young man named Victory, says he was sold at a slave auction. Tired of the rampant corruption in Nigeria’s Edo state, the 21-year-old fled home and spent a year and four months — and his life savings — trying to reach Europe. 
He made it as far as Libya, where he says he and other would-be migrants were held in grim living conditions, deprived of food, abused and mistreated by their captors.
“If you look at most of the people here, if you check your bodies, you see the marks. They are beaten, mutilated.”
When his funds ran out, Victory was sold as a day laborer by his smugglers, who told him that the profit made from the transactions would serve to reduce his debt. But after weeks of being forced to work, Victory was told the money he’d been bought for wasn’t enough. He was returned to his smugglers, only to be re-sold several more times.
The smugglers also demanded ransom payments from Victory’s family before eventually
“I spent a million-plus [Nigerian naira, or $2,780],” he tells CNN from the detention center, where he is waiting to be sent back to Nigeria. “My mother even went to a couple villages, borrowing money from different couriers to save my life.”
As the route through north Africa becomes increasingly fraught, many migrants have relinquished their dreams of ever reaching European shores. This year, more than 8,800 individuals have opted to voluntarily return home on repatriation flights organized by the IOM. 
While many of his friends from Nigeria have made it to Europe, Victory is resigned to returning home empty-handed.
“I could not make it, but I thank God for the life of those that make it,” he says.
“I’m not happy,” he adds. “I go back and start back from square one. It’s very painful. Very painful.”

A 34-year-old National Security Guard (NSG) commando allegedly committed suicide after shooting his wife and sister-in-law in an apparent fit of rage at his residence inside the elite counter-terrorism squad’s Manesar campus in Haryana on Tuesday. Police officials said they suspect familial discord caused the incident.

Assistant sub-inspector Jitender Singh used his MP5 service submachine gun to allegedly shoot his 30-year-old wife and 17-year-old sister-in-law, both of whom are critically wounded, before shooting himself, the police said. Singh’s body has been sent for post-mortem. 

Singh, who had been in service since 2002, hails from Kanpur and was residing in the NSG camp in Manesar for the past two years. He was posted in NSG on deputation from Border Security Force.

The incident took place at 9am on Tuesday. The neighbours reported the incident to police after they heard the gunshots and rushed to his house.

The deceased’s wife, Guddan, and sister-in-law, Kushboo, were admitted to Rockland Hospital in Manesar. Singh’s two children — an eight-year-old girl and two-year-old boy — are safe, police said. The children are being looked after by their neighbours.

“We are investigating the matter. The price reason for the incident is not known as of now. The cause behind the shooting seems to be a dispute in the family. However, we are investigating all angles,” said Dharamveer Singh, ACP, Gurgaon police, Manesar.

The case is currently with the Manesar police station and investigation is being conducted under Section 144 of CrPC.

“We have not yet filed any FIR. We are waiting for the victims’ statements. The family members have been informed and are on their way. Singh’s wife was shot in her lungs, while his sister-in-law received bullet on her abdomen,” said Rahul Dev, SHO, Manesar police station.

An NSG spokesperson said, “Gurgaon police is conducting the probe and we are providing them all required information .”

Phagwara, November 25

On a complaint lodged by Sandeep Kaur, a local resident, the NRI cell of the Kapurthala police have registered a case under Sections 498-A/406/506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against her Germany-based NRI husband Gurdeep Singh and his mother Darshan Kaur, residents of Soojo village, near Banga, on the charges of torturing her physically and mentally to fullfill their demands of more dowry.

The victim told in her written complaint that she got married with Gurdeep on April 2 last year and her husband went to Germany after one month of the marriage and did not return. Her-in-laws started torturing her with the consent of her husband and ultimately she was forced to leave her-in-laws’ house on October 11 last year and was residing in her parental house in Phagwara where she delivered a son on January 9 this year. She alleged that despite several phone calls and requests, none of the member of her in-laws even came to Phagwara to see her son. She even alleged that when connected with her husband residing in Germany, he asked her for divorce after handing over his son to him. Kapurthala SSP Satinder Singh said no arrest had been made so far.

Mumbai: A few days ago in Pune’s Pimpri-Chinchwad, a man committed suicide after being allegedly harassed by his wife. Taking action on a complaint filed by the man’s family, police arrested his wife. The deceased, Jai Telwani, was living in Pimpri-Chinchwad and it was alleged that his wife Trupti Telwani had turned circumstances so sour for him that he ended his life.

According to reports in ABP Majha news channel, On November 13, Telivani committed suicide and soon after, his family members filed a complaint against his wife. An allegation was made that he had committed suicide due to being constantly harassed by his wife.

As per complaint by Jai Telwani’s family members, “Trupti had a habit of spending lots of money for living a life of comfort. Jai was forced to take out loans to support her lifestyle. If Trupti did not get the money, she would get abusive with Jai and even beat him up. Apart from this, she used to threaten Jai with suicide if her demands were not met. A few days ago, she had made a morphed video of Jai in which his voice had been doctored and he was seen saying that he had cancer.”

Jai and Trupti were married four years ago but since March 2018, Trupti started harassing Jai for more money, according to Jai’s mother. Jai was very upset and in despair, he committed suicide. On the other side, the five-year-old son of Jai and Trupti is left to live without his parents.

Meanwhile, yesterday a similar incident took place on Ambegaon in Pune. Due to constant domestic discord with his wife, a man ended his life by hanging himself.

According to police, Kisan and his wife lived in a house that was owned by him. However, his wife used to quarrel with him as she wanted the title of the land to be shifted in her name. Tired of this constant mental harassment, Kisan committed suicide by hanging in his own house. Currently, Bharti Vidyapeeth police is investigating more details in this matter.
