Two more doctors arrested for child trafficking

IANS  |  Kolkata 

Two more doctors have been arrested here for alleged involvement in the inter-state child trafficking case, a senior CID official said on Wednesday.

Dilip Kumar Ghosh, a BJP candidate in Salt Lake municipal election in 2015, was arrested along with another doctor, Nityananda Biswas, on Tuesday night.

Ghosh was allegedly associated with the College Street-based Sri Krishna Nursing Home, which has been linked to child trafficking.

The BJP has sacked the doctor from the party.

A number of doctors, hospital owners, nurses and attendants have been arrested over the past 10 days since the racket came to light.
