Hunger kills more people each year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. One in every nine people on our planet goes to bed hungry each night. And hunger can force you to do the unthinkable. In the Singhbhum district of eastern Jharkhand, a tribal man sold his son for just Rs 1000 to feed the rest of his family.

As per the Amar Ujala reports, Bhota Sabar from a small village of Baruniya in Dohlabeda Panchayat had six children and to feed them he sold one of his children. He recently lost his wife and was the sole bread earner of his family but he also got injured so there was none left to feed the family. The head of the village Sahdev Murmu told to media that he knew the situation of Bhota Sabar so he contacted the BDO and was trying to get him some financial help. Meanwhile, Bhota sold his son.

As per the news reporter Bhudev, Bhota belongs to a tribe called Sabar which is facing extinction. They live in a very difficult condition. Baruniya village has around 6-7 families of Sabar tribes.

Now Bhota Sabar has gone to the police to retrieve his son.

The Logical Indian hopes that he gets his son back and some means to feed his family. However, his action is not justified even if taken under extreme condition.
