CID arrests two more doctors, three babies rescued

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

The CID has arrested two more doctors, alleged to be actively involved in the international child trafficking racket in West Bengal, while three babies were rescued from a bush at Falta in South 24-Parganas district.

Dilip Ghosh, who earlier worked at the state-run R G Kar Medical College and Hospital and Nityananda Biswas, were arrested by CID sleuths late last night for their alleged involvement in the racket, a senior CID officer said.



Both Ghosh and Biswas, he said, had played crucial roles in the child trafficking racket and had been involved with it for a long time.

Ghosh had contested the Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation on a ticket.

State president Dilip Ghosh told reporters, "We have suspended him from all posts till he comes out clean in the probe. What he has done in his professional life is not the lookout of the BJP," he said.

With the arrest of the two doctors, a total 20 people have been arrested by the CID in a span of 10 days since the racket was unearthed at Baduria in North 24 Parganas.

Meanwhile, three babies were rescued from a bush near a canal at Falta in South 24-Parganas district.

"We are looking into whether these babies were part of a trafficking racket and also trying to ascertain the identity of these babies," a senior police officer said.

He said locals, who heard the cry of the babies, informed Falta police station last evening, following which police personnel rushed to the area and rescued them.

"The policemen along with the locals launched a search and found the three babies wrapped in a blanket in a bush on the banks of a canal," he said.

The three babies - two girls and a boy - have been admitted to a government hospital at Diamond Harbour, the officer said.

workers staged demonstration here protesting against child trafficking in the state.

The state government yesterday warned the district child protection officers (DCPOs) of Kolkata, North 24-Parganas and South 24-Parganas districts after the racket was busted in the state last week and asked them to step up surveillance in every state-run home.

State secretariat sources say that the government wants to strengthen rules and procedures for adoption and a directive in this regard is likely to be released soon by the Women, Child and Social Welfare Department to intensify vigil on adoption of children.
