A 57-year-old sadhvi along with six others was arrested for allegedly kidnapping minor children and then selling them to childless couple. The police has so far traced and rescued nine victims who were kidnapped to be sold to childless couples in four states. The price fixed for a child reportedly varied between 50,000 and 60,000. “We are yet to trace three to four kids. A team has already been dispatched to Hardwar to rescue one of them,” a police officer said. Police said the gang used to operate in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. According to the police, the arrest came following complaints from parents of children kidnapped in past few months. Following the complaints, surveillance was mounted in Neb Sarai and Sangam Vihar areas and soon the cops tracked a woman and her husband who were trying to sell children, police said. Working on leads provided by the couple, police zeroed in on Sadhvi Binaji Maharaj of Khanpur. It was further revealed that the racket is spread in various parts of Delhi following which four more persons, including three women and a man, were picked up. During questioning, these four accused revealed that they used to kidnap children and took the abducted kids to the sadhvi. It was the sadhvi who struck deals with childless couples and sold the kids for anything between Rs 25,000 to Rs 1 lakh. The sadhvi used to keep a large portion of the ill-gotten money while the rest was distributed among the other gang members.
