Left jobless because of lockdown, couple sells two-and-a-half-month daughter for Rs 3,000

In a heart-wrenching incident, a jobless couple from West Midnapore district in West Bengal allegedly sold their two-and-a-half-month old baby girl to a distant relative for Rs 3,000.

Before lockdown, while the infants mother used to work as a domestic help, her father was a daily wage earner. Both lost their jobs three months back due to the imposition of lockdown.

The incident came to light on the night of June4  after a team of police officials, accompanied by members of NGO Childline, recovered the baby from the relatives house in Howrah.

While the baby has now been admitted to a government hospital, the parents,  identified as Bapan Dhara and Tapasi, are absconding. Anish Chowdhury, sub-divisional police inspector, Ghatal, told New Indian Express that the child was recovered from a couples house who are distant relatives of the parents. After investigation, the police discovered that the child was sold for Rs 3,000.

 The first tip-off we received was from Bapans neighbours, who could not find the child anywhere. They did not hear her crying. When we started investigating, we came to know about Bapans distant relatives, a childless couple, said Chowdhury.

The infant would be kept at the hospital for three-four days and after that the child would be sent to a state-run home.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
