A woman, who decided to reportedly help an NRI couple by becoming a surrogate mother, has alleged that couple has refused to pay her the promised Rs 5 lakh in lieu of her services.
Kamaljit Kaur, wife of Sukhdev Singh, a resident of Dheerpur village, said UK-based Phagwara resident Tarlochan Singh and his wife Gurbakhash Kaur requested her for help. They came in touch her as she worked at a local fertility centre.
“A baby boy was delivered on December 20, 2012. The couple gave Rs 50,000 at the time of delivery and another Rs 50000 was deposited in my bank account,” said Kamaljeet Kaur.
“After the delivery, the couple took the infant with them. I was not allowed to see the baby,” she said.
She alleged that the couple never gave her the promised Rs 5 lakh and a small house and that she was being threatened.
Her husband Sukhdev Singh alleged that they had receiving threats to sign on certain documents to enable the passport of the new-born to be made and to facilitate the family's movement to the UK.
Meanwhile, NRI Tarlochan Singh when contacted refuted all the charges.
“All these allegations are false. We had given promises amount to Kaur, even before the start of the procedure. She is being greedy. We are looking at other legal ways to get the passport made of my 6-month infant.”
