Produce more & make money – Human Trafficking galore in Jihadified Kerala

published on May 25, 2014

KANNUR: In a case that points towards the possible presence of an illegal child adoption and child trafficking racket in the state, police have arrested a 48-year-old man from Kanhangad in Kasaragod along with three agents on charges of selling his two infant children for Rs 3.25 lakh with the help of a woman advocate, who was arrested in a similar case last year.

Hosdurg police on Friday night arrested Sulaiman P M, a resident of Kanhangad South, based on a tipoff. The three agents — Basheer M, Rasheed P and Moideen T K — were nabbed later. Police said the kids were sold in the name of adoption through a Mangalore-based advocate. She would be arrested soon and the whereabouts of the children would be known only then, they said.

Kanhangad DSP M Pradeepkumar said Sulaiman had 12 children from two wives and he had sold the young children of his second wife, aged one-and-a-half and six months, in April last year. He apparently got Rs 1.75 lakh for the elder girl child while the second one, a boy, fetched him Rs 1.5 lakh, from which commission was paid to the agents and the mediator.
