Congress demands CBI probe in Bengal child smuggling racket

IANS  |  Kolkata 

The Congress' unit on Monday demanded a probe into the inter-state child smuggling racket in which a total of 16 people have been arrested in a week.

"We appeal to the state government to launch a (Central Bureau of Investigation) probe in this matter. Private nursing homes have mushroomed across the state. Such incidents are injustice to our children," said state unit President Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.

"We want to know from the state government where there is any monitoring system regarding private nursing homes in the state," he said.

The CID busted the smuggling racket when they conducted a raid in Baduria-based Sohan Nursing Home in North 24 Parganas district on November 21 and recovered three babies.

A total of 10 newborn baby girls were recovered from a private mental asylum in south Kolkata, as the probe into the sensational child smuggling racket in Bengal unearthed two skeletons and murkier details.

A total of 16 people have so far been arrested from different places of Kolkata and districts.
