Girl Locked Up By Parents In A Filthy Shack For 6 Years Due To Having A Boyfriend They Disapproved
A shocking tale of a girl becomes viral and makes rounds to the social media as her story depicts her living in an unimaginable environment for 6 years already. Pictures of her lying on top of a pile of straws with some food around her went viral as it was obvious that she is malnourished due to her 6 years of being confined in a filthy shack.
Meet Zhang Qi, 24-year-old, the woman who has been locked up by her own parents for 6 years as they disapproved of her boyfriend. Zhang Qi had called it quits with her boyfriend in 2009 as an order from her parents. Zhang thought that everything will be fine after it, but she was wrong. Her parents had decided to keep her in a filthy shed that became her home for 6 years. Due to this, she was not able to see the world outside for such a long time.
She tried to escape several times but her parents spread word to their village that she was mentally ill and ‘for her own protection’, it is necessary for her to get locked up. A villager even told news stations that her parents had controlled the situation and stopped any Good Samaritan from helping their poor daughter.
“Her parents are powerful people here and everyone was told not to interfere, Everyone knew about the girl in the house. I moved away and only come back to visit occasionally so I don’t care about their threats, and that’s why I was happy to expose these pictures online after the local authorities refused to do anything,”
“Every time I came back for Chinese New Year I went to visit her secretly. On my latest visit though I saw her lying on a pile of straw with a couple of blankets and some food around her and I just decided enough was enough. Whether what they say about her having mental problems is true or not, she is being treated like an animal here and I’m sick of it so I contacted the police, and then posted the images online,” Chow Jen
As of now, there is still no official report regarding the current status of the young woman since her pictures went viral all over the web.
