Tribal Family in Tripura Sells Newborn For Rs 5,000
The 11-day-old baby was sold by a tribal woman in order to raise funds for her husband’s treatment.
A tribal woman sold her eleven-day-old son to raise funds for the treatment of her ailing husband at Rangia Tilla of Haldia ADC village in West Tripura.
The father of the child, a daily-wage labourer, who has been ill for a long time, confessed that the child was given to a childless family for a sum.
The child was later recovered by Child Line Foundation from the couple at Khowai and presently kept in a government home.
The incident took place last week and is the third in two years time.
