Senior police officer Mohammad Mushtaq said in a detailed statement that the abduction was carried out by a gang involved in trafficking for money. He said, “The man named Deep Kumar had taken the child. He is a member of a gang that includes two doctors running a hospital in neighboring Hathras district.
Some other health workers are also involved in this. We inquired from the people in whose house the child was found, they told us that they had only one daughter and wanted a son, that’s why they did the ‘deal’. “There has been no response from the arrested councilor or the BJP in this matter so far.
It is worth noting that a video of a child sleeping with his parents at the railway station was stolen on social media recently. This video is being told of Mathura. It is seen in the video how a young man is running away after stealing a child sleeping on the platform from his mother. After getting information about the incident, the GRP police registered a case.
