Woman had 100 ba­bies ‘for sale’

The Queensland Times - - NEWS WORLD -

A WOMAN has been ar­rested af­ter her What­sApp baby-sell­ing ring was busted by cops in In­dia. Ju­lia Fer­nan­des, 29, was nabbed steal­ing ba­bies from par­ents and sell­ing them via What­sApp groups in Mum­bai. Po­lice raided her home and seized her mo­bile phone, find­ing more than 100 pic­tures of ba­bies listed “for sale”. A po­lice spokesman said: “We are in the process of track­ing those cou­ples (who have bought ba­bies) and res­cu­ing the ba­bies.” Fer­nan­des ad­mit­ted her role to po­lice but in­sisted she was just a mid­dle­man for a crim­i­nal gang.
