A baby was sold on Facebook after being kidnapped by his grandfather and sold from person to person until eventually being placed for sale on the social networking website.
This crazy incident has led to the arrest of a businessman in India who attempted to buy the baby on Facebook. The man is reported to have paid 800,000 rupees (approx. $14,750) for the newborn. According to local authorities, grandfather Feroz Khan kidnapped his newly born grandson from the boy’s mother in Ludhiana, Punjab, India.
After the mother gave birth to the boy the grandfather told her that the child had been stillborn. The grandfather is alleged to have sold the baby to a nurse at the hospital, who in turn sold the baby to a lab technician. The lab technician, Gurpreet Singh, later posted a picture of the young boy when he was three days old on Facebook. Businessman Amit Kumar saw the Facebook post and offered to purchase the newborn.
The baby’s true mother later became suspicious when the grandfather gave her a large sum of money – some of the proceeds he had made from the secret sale of her baby. When she finally realized what happened she reported the incident to authorities, and police later arrested Khan, his accomplice, as well as two hospital workers who initially had purchased the baby as well.
Kumar is also set to face charges for his part in the shocking case. Authorities have said that Khan wanted to sell the baby because he was urgent to arrange a second marriage for his daughter. She had previously been married but the father of her child dipped before the birth.
