The seven-month-old child was lifted by a gang of six people who were involved in the trade of selling such children. The child was stolen from the railway station on August 24. The man caught on the CCTV has been identified as Deepak and was arrested.
The police officials informed that based on the CCTV footage extensive search operation was carried out in the last six days in various cities. The special team of railway police travelled 800 kilometres and conducted raids at over two dozen places to track the stolen child. During the raids, police team came to know about the Hathras hospital where this trade of stolen children was going on.
“He (who lifted the child from the station) is part of a gang that includes two doctors who run a hospital in the neighbouring Hathras district. Some other health workers are involved too. We interrogated the people in whose home the child was found, and they told us they had only one daughter, so wanted a son. That’s why they made the deal,” NDTV quoted senior police officer Mohammed Mushtaq as saying.
