In a disgraceful incident, a couple in UP’s Kannauj allegedly sold their 3-month-old baby boy to purchase a second-hand car. According to the media report, the couple sold their 3-month-baby boy to a businessman for Rs 1.5 lakh.
The matter came to light after the child’s maternal grandparents approached the cops and lodged a complaint against the parents, saying that they sold off their newborn baby.
According to the complaint, the parents sold their three-month-old baby to a Gursahaiganj-based businessman for Rs 1.5 lakh “to buy a four-wheeler”.
“While the baby is still in the possession of the trader, we have called the woman and her husband for questioning on May 14,” Inspector Kotwali Shailendra Kumar Mishra told media.
