A couple is in custody after the Mumbai Police suspect them of taking a 71-day-old baby girl with the goal of selling her. The toddler was also saved by police.
On October 25, the girl was abducted, and the police were notified the next day. Manisha Chakram Shekhar, the girl’s mother, said in her lawsuit that the kidnapping took place from her home on a sidewalk near St. Xavier’s school.
Her complaint led to the filing of a case under Section 363 IPC.
According to the police, the pair abducted the infant with the purpose of selling her, and a CCTV camera also recorded the abduction.
Mohammed Hanif and his wife Afreen have been identified as the accused couple.
The case is still being looked into by the police.
