However, the baby was taken back by the charity home with assurances of returning it back after court procedures.
'We hear that babies are being sold in other homes as well and are determined to put a stop to it, ' he said. Missionaries of Charity cut its ties with the new system because it remains opposed to babies being adopted to single women or unmarried couples.
