Parween, who is from Jharkhand’s Hazaribagh district and currently lives in Mumbai, allegedly gave the family Rs 22,000, police said.

An FIR has been registered against her under IPC Section 370 (trafficking), among others.

The incident was reported on Thursday.

“We have sent the child to a home in consultation with the Child Welfare Committee (CWC)… Nikhat Parween had bought the child from a family in Ranchi, who seem to be very poor…
