In a heartening development, Hyderabad Police have intervened in a multi-state child trafficking racket, rescuing 13 vulnerable babies. Led by Commissioner C.V. Anand, the operation resulted in the arrest of several individuals involved in this heinous crime.

The rescued infants, ranging from mere newborns to two-month-olds, were found in appalling conditions. They are now receiving critical medical care and safe haven under the watchful eye of child welfare authorities. A relentless search for their biological parents is underway.

The investigation, spearheaded by Commissioner Anand, uncovered a complex network spanning across Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Maharashtra. This ruthless gang preyed on financially disadvantaged families, luring them with promises of a better future for their children. The shocking truth, however, was that these babies were being sold to childless couples at exorbitant prices.

The successful operation involved meticulous surveillance and intelligence gathering. Police teams then executed coordinated raids across multiple locations in Hyderabad. Commissioner Anand commended the complexity of the mission, highlighting the traffickers’ use of forged documents and covert transportation methods to evade detection.

“This takedown marks a significant stride in our relentless fight against child trafficking,” declared Commissioner Anand in a press conference. “We are unwavering in our commitment to dismantle these criminal networks and safeguard the well-being of vulnerable children.”

This successful police action underscores the grim reality of child trafficking in India, where socio-economic vulnerabilities create a breeding ground for such horrific crimes.
