Mohali, May 26
The court today granted bail to Punjabi University employee couple Charanvir Singh and Parvinder Kaur, alias Sakshi, of Patiala allegedly involved in a child trafficking case.
The duo were granted bail after furnishing a bail bond of Rs 1 lakh each.
The police had arrested a Mansa resident, Sunny Dev, alleged kingpin, in the case registered in January this year. He had been absconding for more than three months, but was nabbed by a police team from his home on April 15. A co-accused, Lumbar of Mansa, is absconding.
According to the cops, Patiala resident Charanvir Singh, his wife Parvinder Kaur and Faridkot resident Manjinder Singh and his wife Parvinder Kaur were arrested on January 30. A five-day-old child was rescued from the Punjabi University couple after which two more children, an eight-month-old and a one-and-a-half-year-old, were rescued from them.
The suspects had bought two more children, but they had died, the police said.
