Baby selling scandal: Missionaries of Charity Homes to be inspected

Published

New Delhi, July 17 : The Central government has issued instructions to states to carry out inspections at all child care homes run by Missionaries of Charity organisation, founded by Mother Teresa, in the wake of recent cases of alleged sale of babies at a Missionaries of Charity shelter home in Jharkhand.

“Taking cognizance of the recent cases of illegal adoptions carried out by Missionaries of Charity in Jharkhand, Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi has instructed the states to get child care homes run by Missionaries of Charity all over the country inspected immediately,” an official press release said.

Union Minister Maneka Gandhi also asked state governments to ensure that all child care institutions are registered and linked to the country’ top adoption body, CARA, within a month.

A nun and a woman employee of the Nirmal Hriday in Ranchi, run by Mother Teresa’s charity, were arrested earlier this month for allegedly selling babies for adoption.

Jharkhand Police said on Sunday that they have found the fourth child “given away for free” by a woman who worked as a nun for a shelter home run by Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity in Ranchi.

The Jharkhand Police on Sunday found a fourth baby allegedly sold by an employee and a nun of Nirmal Hriday.
The police statement came a day after the woman “confessed” about having sold three children and giving away the fourth for free to a person without documentation.

The racket at the Ranchi branch triggered a state-wide crackdown on shelter homes, particularly those run by the Missionaries of Charity.
