A piece of new information has come out in the Erode 16 year girl's egg sale case. This incident has brought a huge stir in the state. Many shocking information has come out from this case.

Police are investigating a complaint lodged with the Erode District Superintendent of Police alleging that a 16-year-old girl was sexually abused in the Erode district and her eggs were sold at a private hospital. Three persons, including the mother, stepfather Syed Ali and intermediary women, were arrested based on an investigation conducted by the police on the orders of Erode SP Sasi Mohan.

While inquiring about the girl's mother and stepfather, Syed Ali police received startling information. The girl's mother, Indirani, separated from her husband when her daughter was four years old and had been living with a painter named Syed Ali. Indirani used to sell her eggs to private hospitals.

It has been revealed that the stepfather Syed Ali had sexually abused the girl with the help of Indirani and helped to sell the eggs. They have been sexually abusing and selling their eggs in private hospitals for years. It is said that Rupees 20 thousand were bought at the time of sale of each egg. They gave 5000 rupees to Malathi, who acted as a mediator. They have also created fake evidence to show the age of the girl as 22 from 16 in order to get money by giving the egg. They have sold the 16-year-old girl's egg eight times like this.
