Women Connected To Mother Teresa's Charity Accused Of Trafficking Babies

Ranchi: Sister of 'Missionaries of Charity' arrested for illegal child trade

The objective of the home, called Nirmal Hriday (Pure Hearts) is to provide shelter for pregnant unmarried women.

Mother Teresa officially started the Missionaries of Charity on October 7, 1950, according to the charities website.

The hospitals where the children were delivered will also be investigated, police said.

"They have said that at least five to six babies have been sold to childless couples", police officer Aman Kumar told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in a phone interview.

In regards to Mother Teresa's charity, authorities are taking a closer to see how many children and families have been affected.

When the CWC members questioned one of the nuns, she told them that the mother has taken him away.

Sister Prema, superior of the Missionaries of Charity, said she was in shock over the allegations and the police response but added: "We are carefully looking into this matter".

The scandal blew up four years later after the local child welfare authorities this week informed the police about a new-born missing from the home that was meant to care for unwed pregnant women and mothers in distress.

'It is against our moral convictions. A government statement said Mr Das had asked his office to figure how the investigation can be conducted to check if babies were being sold in homes run by other non-profits as well.

A Missionaries of Charity spokeswoman quoted by the Associated Press said the order had stopped giving children up for adoption three years ago and had never taken money from parents.
