Keeping Mums

A mum whose baby son was stolen by human traffickers two years ago has told how she's letting him stay with the woman who bought him because she doesn't want to break their "motherly bond."

Little Jignesh - now four - was snatched two years ago from real mum Shital Rajput's home in Surat, western India.

He was found this month when police seized a kidnapper on unrelated trafficking charges and she confessed to stealing Jignesh too.

The tot had been living with new mum Aarti Tanavade hundreds of miles away in Mumbai, who'd bought the youngster after her own son died.

But now real mum Shital says she will let her son stay with the woman who bought him.

"She obviously loves him as a mother and I know it would break her heart if I took him back," she explained.

"I love him too but in a different way.

"I know she will take good care of him and I will still be a part of his life in the future," added Shital.

Local police inspector K.C. Rajput said: "We have arrested the trafficker but we are talking to Tanavade about her part in this.

"But both mothers seem to be happy with what they've decided and formal adoption procedures are ongoing."
