A nun, identified as Sister Koncilia, and a staff member, Anima Indwar, were arrested in connection with trafficking.

Rupa Verma, chairperson of an organization run by the state government for children's welfare, said Indwar took the child away when the couple arrived.

"Though we do condemn the incident of child selling, the institution is being deliberately targeted for a fault of one of its employees", she said at CPI (M)'s state headquarters in Ranchi.

The third of the four children allegedly "sold" by the shelter home was rescued by the police from Simdega on Wednesday and was returned over to his adoptive parents the next day. "We are working to verify them".

Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi said in a statement on Monday she had also instructed states to ensure that all childcare institutions be registered and linked to the federal adoption authority within the next one month.

Since then some 2,300 childcare institutions have been linked to the Central Adoption Resource Authority and about 4,000 are still pending, according to the government.
