Her father tells her what happened to Niloufar, the girl that had been hiding in Khosro basement. The man that marries a girl is supposed to give the girl a dowry. If the girl dies, the family of the girl receives the dowry. This is how the family knew that Niloufar had been killed. The family received 500 Tumans, the equivalent of $5, for her life. Marji is horrified.
