Woman held in rape and baby-sale probe

A WOMAN suspected of running a fake employment agency in New Delhi that organised the rape of young women and subsequent sale of their babies has been arrested for kidnapping.

Preeti and her husband Vinod, who each go by one name, ran the agency offering maids to families, police said.

The couple allegedly lured girls with promises of work, but instead confined them to a small room where they were raped to make them pregnant. Their children were later sold to childless couples.
