Bhubaneswar, Jun 19 (PTI) A ten-day-old boy, who was

allegedly sold by his drug-addict father for Rs 10,000 in

Odisha, was rescued from a woman by members of Childline

with the help of police.

The baby was rescued from a woman in Mali Sahi area

under Kharvelnagar police station limit in the state capital

and kept at an adoption centre, Childline director Benudhar

Senapati said.

"The father of the baby is a drug addct. Due to

financial constraints, the newborns father forced his wife to

dump the baby in a dustbin. But, the mother handed over the

child to a woman," Senapati told reporters.

However, the woman who purchased the child said,

"They were about to abandon the baby. Since I have no son, I

bought the baby for Rs 10,000."

Senapati said, both the buyer and seller of a baby are

guilty under provisions of the Juvenile Justice Act.

The police said it was inquiring into the matter and

all the facts will become clear after the probe is over.

A case has been registered in Kharavela Nagar police

station.

The matter came to light after video of a man telling

that a woman came to him and his wife and forcibly took away

their 10-day-old child after giving them Rs 10,000 came to the

notice of the Childline authorities, police said.

"There are many inconsistencies in the versions of

both the parties and only a proper investigation will unravel

the truth," they said. PTI AAM
