Picture for Representation.

Kolkata: Five persons, including the owner of a private nursing home in North 24 Parganas district, have been arrested on the charge of being involved in the trafficking of an 11-day-old child.

The arrested persons also included a couple who were allegedly sold the newly-born girl for Rs 60,000 from the nursing home at Ashok Nagar locality of Habra. The two others were the nursing home's caretaker and a quack attached to the facility, police said.

The incident came to light on Saturday after the couple went to Habra hospital with a newly born girl, who was ill, but failed to produce documents regarding her birth. The hospital authorities suspected foul play and informed the police who questioned the couple and came to know about the alleged trafficking racket.

It is still not clear who were the child's parents. Police sought the nod of a local court to seal the nursing home. The court remanded the caretaker and quack to eight days' police custody and others to judicial custody.
