The man, identified by surname Xie, used to repetitively fight with his second wife and is alleged to have sold the boy nicknamed Jiajia to release the burden of child care
After the incident came to light, he has been detained by the police. It is important to mention that Xie was given custody of the boy after divorcing the child’s mother or his first wife, who kept their daughter. But due to his work commitments in another city, Xie left the boy in the care of his brother Lin and other family members in Huzhou city.
But things used to turn different from last month when Xie took away his son from his brother Lin by saying that his mother wants to see him. But the child was untraceable since then.
When the police investigation has started, it had been found out that Xie had sold the boy to a childless couple in Changshu, a city in Jiangsu province, for 158,000 yuan (Rs 18 Lakh). He then used the money to take his new wife to different parts of the country.
The baby was now returned to his uncle and the couple is now facing ‘criminal coercive measures’.
