Jharkhand baby-selling racket: Maneka Gandhi directs states to take steps

Sister Konsalia and Anima Indwar, an employee of the Nirmal Hriday, were arrested in connection with the sale of the babies.

He, however, did not say how much money was taken for the alleged sale. Karat's statement came on a day when the Missionaries of Charity issued a statement expressing regret and sorrow for the child selling incident at its Nirmal Hriday home in Ranchi.

Since then, it is said to have focused on helping unwed pregnant women and mothers in distress. The complainant said they bought the child for Rs 1.20 lakh.

"We are working on verifying them", Gupta said.

Days after the baby-selling scandal in Jharkhand, Union Minister of Women and Child Development, Maneka Gandhi, on Tuesday instructed the state governments to carry out inspection of child care homes run by Missionaries of Charity across the country.

Women and child development minister Maneka Gandhi has said all childcare institutions should be registered and linked to the country's central adoption authority within the next month, with the Supreme Court having made the order at the end of previous year.

Theodore Mascarenhas, general secretary of The Catholic Bishop Conference of India, however, refuted the police's claim and told MoC lawyer that the sister's statement was taken "under pressure" during interrogation by the police.

Missionaries of Charity was previously involved in providing legal adoption services in India but in 2015 said it was closing down its adoption centres, citing new regulations that made it easier for single and divorced people to adopt children.

India is investigating Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity amid allegations that it has been selling babies.

The revelation has sparked national outcry within India.

She was not without detractors, however, including the late writer Christopher Hitchens, who said Teresa was focused on the need for the sick to suffer like Christ on the cross, rather than on relieving their pain.

Teresa, who died in 1997, was recognized by the Vatican as a saint in 2016.
