Secret ‘Baby farm’ where unwanted babies are sold or swapped busted in Madhya Pradesh:

Bhopal: In a major breakthrough, Madhya Pradesh police have busted an alleged ‘baby farm’ operated from a private hospital in Gwalior district, selling and swapping ‘unwanted’ new-borns for Rs 1 lakh each.Babies born out of rape or illicit relationships were being delivered at this hospital and sold for adoption, police said. Two new-borns have been rescued from the 30-bed Palash Hospital in Gwalior’s Murar area.”3 others have been sold to childless couples in UP and Chhattisgarh”, Prateek Kumar, ASP crime branch told TOI on phone.Five people including the hospitals director TK Gupta, manager and parents who bought babies from this hospital have been booked under sections 370 (buying or disposing of any person as slave), 371 (Habitual dealing in slaves) and 373 (buying minor for the purpose of prostitution).Hospital manager Arun Bhadoria has been arrested. “During interrogation he could not give us whereabouts of two babies that were found in the hospital,” said the ASP.He said the accused had agents in the Chambal region who used to fetch girls carrying unwanted pregnancies.”When a girl or her parents approached them for termination of pregnancies, doctors at this hospital used to convince them assuring a safe and secret delivery. Once baby is delivered and mother gets discharged, hospital authorities start hunting for gullible couples who could buy them,” said an investigating officer.In one of the cases, the accused have also swapped a new born girl with boy.”A Gwalior based couple had two boys. They swapped one of their boys with a girl at this hospital,” said the officer. Investigations are on to rescue other babies ‘sold’ in the same manner.curtsey TOI for TOP
