A person, wanting to sell his newborn daughter, was arrested by the Mohali police on Wednesday night.
Jaspal Singh, the accused, was carrying his daughter in a polythene bag for hours in a bid to sell her, when inspector Navin Pal Singh Lehal spotted him.
The strange behavior of the accused raised doubts and was asked to reveal what's inside the polythene bag. "I already have two sons and I was unable to take care of the third child. So, me and my wife decided to sell the baby," he told the police.
“We have registered a case against him on the complaint of the doctor of the Civil Hospital," said Lehal.
The baby is said to be unwell and has been admitted to the ICU of the Mohali Civil Hospital.
