Kolkata: Police have arrested a top BJP Mahila Morcha leader in West Bengal in connection to a child trafficking racket in north Bengal sources said.
Late on Tuesday night CID team arrested Juhi Chowdhury, general secretary of the BJP’s women’s wing in the state from the Indo-Nepal border.
Chowdhury’s arrest comes after a Jalpaiguri-based child adoption center came under the police scanner.
The child trafficking racket was busted last week when the CID team arrested Chandana Chakraborty, chairperson of an NGO.
According to the CID, four people have been arrested in the racket for selling at least 17 children to Indians and foreigners.
