Days after the Roman Catholic Church backed the nun at the Missionaries of Charity shelter home, the police put out a video of the nun confessing to her role in the racket.
Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das had ordered a probe by Jharkhand State Child Protection Commission (JSCPC) into the selling of a baby by the staff of a shelter home run by Missionaries of Charity in Ranchi.
A woman staffer and a sister of Nirmal Hriday, a shelter home run by the Missionaries of Charity at Jail Road, were arrested last week for allegedly selling a child born to a minor inmate of the home to a Uttar Pradesh-based couple.
