The center provides shelter for unmarried, pregnant women. Considered by activists as one of epicenters of baby trafficking in India, West Bengal is also headquarters of Sisters of Charity in Asian country; Since his capital, Calcutta, gave name to Mor Teresa, creator of order.

The fourth baby missing in the Ranchi child trafficking case was recovered by Police on Sunday from a staff and nun of the shelter home run by Mother Teresa founded Missionaries of Charity.

The couple told police Indwar called them on July 1 and asked them to visit the shelter with the baby to complete some formalities. The newspaper said that he was bought by a couple living near Ranchi.

The couple's 2-year-old son was in the audience in the arms of his grandmother, who covered her eyes as the audience gasped. Although, he admitted falling off a trapeze was more unsafe than falling off key.

Senior superintendent of police (Ranchi) Anis Gupta said that Sister Konsalia, during interrogation, "confessed" that she had sold the three children to three people. She died in 1997 at 87.

"We are fully cooperating with the investigations and are open to any free, fair and just inquiry", she said in a statement. It's against our moral convictions. "We are carefully looking into the matter".

In the aftermath of the adoption scandal, the Missionaries of Charity had said it would carefully look into the Jharkhand case and ensure the incident was never repeated.

Now 2.3 lakh children are being provided for by CCIs, registered or unregistered, in the country as per the National Commission for Protection of Children Rights. But the agency estimates there are as many as 30 million parentless children in the country. An infamously slow and overwhelmed legal system leaves adopters waiting up to four years for approval.
