The probe of the Ranchi’s Missionaries of Charity case involving baby-selling racket has been handed over to the Crime Investigation Department (CID).
DGP DK Pandey has directed the probe to be handed over to the CID. Charges of baby trafficking have been levelled against a nun and a worker at the Ranchi shelter, called Nirmal Hriday (or “pure heart”).
The nun and the woman employee were arrested in the first week of July on charges that they sold babies born to women at the home.
Anima Indwar, an employee, earlier confessed to having sold four babies. All these four children have been rescued.
Several other shocking facts have also been revealed during the investigation till now. Earlier this month, India Today TV accessed a letter that the Missionaries of Charity (MOC), a Roman Catholic order founded by Mother Teresa, made pregnant women at a Ranchi shelter sign a letter that said that they would wilfully give away their newborns to the organisation.
The central government has also ordered all states to immediately inspect child-care homes run by Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity across the country.
