RANCHI: Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (JVM) Chief Babulal Marandi, after visiting 'Nirmal Hriday' run by Missionaries of Charity on Saturday, alleged State Government doing politics and asked it to get it investigated properly instead of letting the issue open for media trial.

Marandi also said that the State Government was trying to create a sensation in the society by maligning the image of those who have been serving the people for long.

"The Government is doing politics on the issue. The Missionaries of Charity have been serving the society since long and if any such mistake has been done by one or two people whom they trusted upon, investigation must be done into the matter," said Marandi.

It is nothing but creating sensation unnecessarily by maligning the image of those people who have been serving the society since long, he added.

"The matter must be investigated properly instead of letting the issue open for media trial," said the JVM Chief. They are planning to politicize the issue to get advantage in 2019 polls by maligning the image of those who have been serving the people, he added. Ranchi Police, on the other hand, claimed that no it did not had the exact figure that how many infants have been sold till date but, investigation was on to find out the number and other people involved in the racket.

"Police have no concrete figure but as per the figures obtained by District Welfare Office from the registers of 'Nirmal Hriday,' about 120 pregnant women were brought between 2016-18 and a verification was on to find out how many children took birth during the period and trace them out," said Ranchi SSP Anish Gupta.

Sister Koshleniea and staff Anima Indwar, of 'Nirmal Hriday' run by Missionaries of Charity in Ranchi, were arrested on July 3 for their involvement in the illegal trade of children after taking huge amount of money from the couples keen for adopting children.

According to police, the racket involved in the illegal trade was busted after a couple approached the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) for not getting his child even after paying a sum of Rs 1.2 lakh to the lady working with the organization.
