According to police, Balsa and Indwar admitted to selling the babies of the women who came to the shelter.

Indwar reportedly sold the baby to the couple on May 14, according to the Press Trust of India news agency (PTI).

"It is nearly impossible that the racket was happening without her knowledge, but we need evidence", the officer said. The sisterhood has over 3,000 nuns worldwide, and is suppose to aid unmarried pregnant women. The matter was revealed after a couple approached the CWC when they were not handed over their child even after paying Rs 1.2 lakh to the sister.

An Indian couple had claimed they paid 120,000 rupees ($2,285) to Anima Indwar, who worked at the shelter run by the Missionaries of Charity, said police officer Aman Kumar.

The arrests on Tuesday and Wednesday followed the couple's complaint the charity worker had taken back the baby boy and kept their money. "When the child was brought to the home, Indwar took the boy away", a Ranchi Child Welfare Committee (CWC) chairperson told The Hindu.

The pair were initially charged with human trafficking - punishable by up to five years in prison - but police said they could face more charges as investigations widen.

This isn't the first time that the Ranchi branch of Missionaries of Charity has faced such an allegation, Dr OP Singh, who took over as the head of the child welfare committee in 2013.

"We are shocked to know what has happened in our home. But if it has happened, we must look into it".

The CWC in the recent past has been constantly monitoring the situation at the Missionaries of Charity.

Authorities grew suspicious after the state's Child Welfare Committee discovered a newborn boy was missing from the centre last week. "We will take all necessary precautions so that it never happens again".
