New Delhi: In a bizarre incident, a couple in Uttar Pradesh allegedly sold their three-month-old baby boy to a businessman for Rs 1.5 lakh.

The couple reportedly intended to purchase a second-hand car from the money.

A TOI report states that the child’s maternal grandparents filed a complaint against the parents at Tirwa Kotwali police station in Kannauj on Thursday, May 13.

The complaint mentions that the couple sold the baby to a Gursahaiganj-based businessman to purchase a second-hand four-wheeler for Rs 1.5 lakh.

“While the baby is still in the possession of the trader, we have called the woman and her husband for questioning on Friday,” Inspector Kotwali Shailendra Kumar Mishra told The Times of India.
