A 50-second video went viral on social media on Saturday that showed a nun getting arrested on charges of child trafficking. The video also showed her confessing “I have sold two more babies”. She can further be heard saying that she does not know where the babies are now while adding she gave away one child for “free”.

Ranchi city superintendent of police, Aman Kumar, however, said they were not the ones to release the video. Sister Koshleniea, in-charge of Nirmal Hriday, a Missionaries of Charity-run shelter home, and Anima Indwar, a sweeper with the shelter home, was arrested on 4th July for allegedly selling a child.

‘Paid Rs 1.20,000 for a child’

The arrest was based on a complaint to Child Welfare Committee (CWC) by a Uttar-Pradesh based couple claiming that they paid Rs 120,000 to Anima Indwar for a child. The couple complained that Indwar had taken back the baby boy and kept their money as well. Rs 100,000 were recovered from both the ladies, said the police.

Three other investigations were going on the same organisation for selling four babies, out of which the police recovered three babies.

A  day after the arrest, CWC evacuated the Nirmala Shishu Bhawan, another shelter home run by Missionaries of Charities in the state capital, and shifted 22 children to a disclosed location for their safety, wrote the Hindustan Times.

Chief Minister Raghubar Das has already asked State Commission of Protection of Child Rights (SCPCR) to hold a detailed probe into the activities of such organizations and their operations in the State and submit a report by August 15.

“Anima Indwar and Sister Koshleniea have been taken on a four-day remand for further investigation in the case. We sense involvement of a large number of people in the racket because one cannot run such a business without several people at higher levels,” said SN Mandal, Officer in Charge.

Looking at the seriousness of the matter, the State Police has recommended a CBI inquiry for the case.
