ABSTRACT
The article reports on the increasing number of male infants being stolen from hospitals in Mumbai, India. The poor remains the target of theft since their complaints can be ignored by the police. Stolen infants are usually bound for secret adoptions. In response to this, the central government of India proposed the implementation of the Integrated Child Protection Scheme to monitor adoption agencies and make adoption more difficult.
