Hyderabad, Telangana

Police rescue 7 children and bust Cyberabad-based child trafficking racket

The Nalgonda police have arrested six people in connection with a child trafficking racket and rescued seven children between the ages of one and four. The children were abducted from slums and lower middle-class colonies in Hyderabad, Cyberabad, and Vijayawada during summer nights. The accused confessed to selling the children for amounts ranging from Rs 7,000 to Rs 1 lakh, depending on the affordability of the purchasers.

Five of the children have been reunited with their parents, while two remain unidentified. There are several missing cases registered in Kukatpally, Miyapur, Sanatnagar police stations, and the Aleru police station in Nalgonda. The arrested include M. Mallaiah, Kadiyala Rangamma, M. Raju, P. Yadamma, K. Pochamma, and M. Butchamma, and police have also booked cases against the buyers.

Nalgonda superintendent of police T. Prabhakar Rao said that the offenders hailed from different parts of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh and settled in New Colony near Sai Baba Temple in Miyapur of Cyberabad. The duo who lifted babies from mothers’ sides while they were asleep at night would hand them over to Rangamma, who would sell them to Pochamma and Butchamma, and then Mallaiah would identify prospective buyers and sell the babies.
