Gang responsible for swapping and selling newbors was arrested in Pakistan

Pakistani police have arrested several hospital workers over a scheme that abducted and sold newborn babies in Peshawar, local media report, reports BBC.

The gang swapped newborn babies with the bodies of dead infants in hospitals and maternity homes, and told their parents the child had died.
