Man was arrested for allegedly selling his Child

A man who hails from Bhadrak district of Odisha yesterday was arrested for allegedly selling his eleven-month-old son.

The police as per the source said that Balaram Mukhi sold his eleven-year-old son for Rs. 25,000, while he spent Rs. 2,000 on the mobile phone, Rs. 1,500 on a silver anklet for his seven-year-old daughter and one saree for the wife and the rest of alcohol.

Bhadrak's Superintendent of Police (SSP) Anup Sahoo said "He works as a sweeper and seems to be a habitual drinker,"
Somnath Sethi, who had retired as a driver with the state government, and his wife had lost their 24-year-old son in 2012.

"Sethi's wife had been suffering from depression after their only son died and he had told his acquaintances to look for a child they could adopt so that his wife recovers," said Inspector-in-charge of the Bhadrak Town Police Station, Manoj Rout.

The Anganwadi worker, who knew the Sethi couple, contacted Mukhi and struck a deal between them.
