Unable to bear to pangs of poverty, a woman, Aano Birhor from Jharkhand, claimed that she has sold her newborn son for Rs 2,500 and bought a couple of goats with the same money. Birhor sold her son to a person called Kedar Sao who has four daughters and was wanting a son.

Investigation underway

The woman, a resident of Birhor Tola, Ramgarh already has six children — three sons and three daughters. Her husband had died earlier and she makes a living by making ropes, which is a major occupation in the area. So far, no case has been registered to the police. Officials have said that an investigation is on its way.

Bleak situation

Child trafficking and selling of children is a silent yet rampant practice in India. Poverty many times forces people to do so. The situation is bleak when it comes to stopping this practice. We request the NGOs who are closer to the ground, the hospitals and the government to work together and prevent such practices.
