India asks states to inspect childcare homes run by Missionaries of Charity

Maneka Gandhi takes cognizance of Jharkhand baby-selling racket Mother Teresa Missionaries of Charity investigated over baby trafficking concerns

Officials were asked to inspect all childcare centers run by the charity after a nun and an employee were arrested earlier this month for allegedly selling a baby in the eastern state of Jharkhand, the BBC reports.

Police have confirmed that they are investigating at least three complaints, but the charity - which was set up by the famous missionary in Kolkata in 1950 - has denied that any children had been sold. The six-month-old baby was allegedly sold for Rs 50,000.

Indwar and the nun, identified by local press as Sister Koncila, were arrested July 5. The newspaper said that he was bought by a couple living near Ranchi.

Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi has ordered Missionaries of Charity facilities all over the country to be immediately inspected.

"We are working on verifying them", Gupta said. Since then, approximately 2300 child care institutions have been linked to CARA and about 4000 are still pending for linkage.

Theresa May steps back from brink with narrow Brexit victory
Brexit secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson resigned last week over the deal, which they said is too soft. Defeat would likely have made a confidence vote in the government inevitable.

Women and child development minister Maneka Gandhi has said all childcare institutions should be registered and linked to the country's central adoption authority within the next month, with the Supreme Court having made the order at the end of previous year.

Missionaries of Charity discontinued adoptions in India in 2015, saying it disagreed with government rules that made it easier for single, divorced, and separated people to adopt children, according to ABC, the Australian Broadcasting Corp.

The general secretary of the Catholic Bishop Conference of India, Theodore Mascarenhas, claimed that on 11 July, the sister told the lawyer of Missionaries of Charity that she was not involved in the baby-selling racket in Jharkhand, and that the police had taken her statement "under pressure".

Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity is under investigation by the Indian government over allegations of selling babies for adoption.

She was not without detractors, however, including the late writer Christopher Hitchens, who said Teresa was focused on the need for the sick to suffer like Christ on the cross, rather than on relieving their pain.
