Woman arrested for allegedly selling her child

A 32 year old woman, Shaila Patil was arrested by the Goa police for allegedly selling her infant son of 11 months old. The child was sold to Amar Morje who is married but childless.

Shaila took the help of her two friends, Yogesh Gosawi and Ananta Damaji to sell her baby as she urgently needed 2 lakh. The two men then contacted Amar Morge who immediately accepted to “buy” the child.

All of them were later arrested when shaila’s husband lodged a complaint upon his return as he wanted the child back. The woman reportedly did this inhuman act as she was in desperate need of money. During the interrogation Shaila confessed that her husband was completely unaware of the huge amount she needed and when she “sold” the baby as he was away.

A case has been registered under the anti-trafficking provisions of the Indian Penal Code. Further investigation is still in process.
