A newborn baby in India was rescued at the last minute from being sold by his own grandfather in order to fund his drug problem.

47- year old Feroz Khan has been arrested for allegedly conspiring with two hospital employees to kidnap the baby just hours after he was born; his plan was to sell the child to a Facebook friend whose wife had trouble conceiving. Luckily, the child’s mother found out about the plot and alerted police. The baby was returned unharmed to his mother, and a total of four people are now facing charges.

“We acted upon the complaint of the mother, who alleged that her child was stolen from the nursing home in Ludhiana,” Ishwar Singh, Ludhiana’s Commissioner of Police, said. “After investigations, we found the grandfather of the child had struck a deal with a man in Delhi and had roped-in the nursing staff to smuggle the baby out of the nursing home. We have arrested four people including the grandfather. We have also booked the buyer from Delhi.”

Khan was allegedly asking for about $830 for the child.

    Nowhere in your story, or any other story, does it say it’s for drug money. In fact, in the HuffPo story, it says “His plan to sell the baby on Facebook was apparently part of “a bid to facilitate the second marriage of his daughter,” according to Punjab Newsline.”

    Love to see where you got this headline from. Or did you just make it up?
