New Delhi: The RSS today said a thorough probe should be carried out against the Missionaries of Charity (MoC) after a sister of a shelter home run by it in Ranchi was arrested for allegedly selling a child.

Last week a woman staffer and a sister of Nirmal Hriday, a shelter home run by the MoC in Ranchi, were arrested for allegedly selling a child, born to a minor inmate of the home, to a couple.

“It is a serious matter and a thorough inquiry should be carried out against Missionaries of Charity (MoC),” the Sangh’s Delhi unit prachar pramukh Rajiv Tuli said.

Chief Minister Raghubar Das has ordered a probe by the Jharkhand State Child Protection Commission into the incident.

The Missionaries of Charity headquarters in Kolkata had issued a statement last week, saying it would take necessary action to find out the truth.

CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury also said that law should be allowed to take its own course and there shouldn’t be any harassment of the nuns.

“Mother Teresa’s (Missionaries of Charity) is a renowned and respected organisation. Despite our differences, we have the highest respect for them. It (the charge) is unbelievable. Let the law take its own course,” Yechury said addressing a press conference in Kolkata.
