The Patiala police have arrested seven persons, including two women, allegedly involved in selling and buying of newborn babies. Two infants were also recovered from the gang members, said the police.

The suspects include Baljinder Singh, Amandeep Kaur, Bhupinder Kaur, Lalit Kumar, Sajit, Harpreet Singh and Sukhwinder Singh.

SSP Varun Sharma said, “Following a tip-off, we arrested the gang members who had come to sell an infant to Sukhwinder Singh, a resident of Dhanas, in Chandigarh. A case was registered in this regard at the Sadar Samana police station. We have also seized Rs 4 lakh meant to buy the infant.”
