The incident took place in bordering Khowai district's Munda Basti Autonomous District Council village.
"When my wife was three months pregnant, we (my wife and I) contacted the doctor for aborting. But then, a few villagers came to know about it and suggested us not to abort the child and that they will put me in touch with someone who will take the baby and give it a better life. Accordingly, I then contacted those people, and last Tuesday (June 2), the child was born, and on Wednesday at 11.20 a.m., we handed over the child. Those who took my son we very happy and gave me Rs.4,500," said Ranjit Tanti, the father of the baby.
Sima Tanti, the mother of the child, said it was becoming impossible to run their family on their meager income.
"My husband and I had decided to give away our son hoping that he will lead a better life, be able to study there. We are poor and cannot educate him, as we do not have the money," said Sima.
A couple of Duski village under Teliamura, 35 km from the village had bought the child.
