The Odisha Police have said they busted a racket in Rourkela allegedly involved in selling children to childless couples in Jharkhand, Bihar, West Bengal, and Chhattisgarh and arrested nine people.

“A woman struck a deal with Sangita and Neeta Agarwal to sell her 1.5-year-old granddaughter. The woman was asked to come to the Idgah Ground (Rourkela) for the money. On Sunday night, the woman arrived at the designated location where she handed over her granddaughter to Seema and Sarita. However, instead of paying her, they fled with the child. The woman then lodged a police complaint,” said Bikram Keshari Bhoi, additional police superintendent, Rourkela.

On the basis of her complaint, police registered a case. Police said the gang would lure poor people to sell their children.

Last month, police in Bhubaneswar rescued a 10-day-old baby who was sold to a couple for 10,000 by his parents. Similarly, a woman in the Kendrapara district last month sold her 10-month-old baby for 5,000 to a childless couple as she was unable to sustain her family due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
