The battered baby case took a sudden turn on Saturday with the baby’s maternal grandparents accusing their son-in-law Shah Hussain of selling his wife, Munni, and her three children — including the baby — to flesh traders.
Munni's mother Samuel Nisha and father Mohammad Zainul, a retired railway employee, said Munni’s original name was Fijan Khatoon. They left for Delhi on Saturday to meet the child.
“We are feeling uneasy and restless after coming to know that Hussain sold Munni and her children to pimps in Delhi,” they said.
They said they came to know about the incident only on Friday when one of their three sons called up from Delhi to inform them about their grandchild.
