Sukhdevi was admitted into a district hospital after her seven months pregnancy developed complications. The team of doctors asked Arvind to arrange for blood to proceed with the treatment. 

"In the district hospital, we were told to get blood for her. They told me that she will not survive if blood is not arranged for her. I didn't have money. So, I had no other option, but to sell my child," said Arvind, as quoted by ANI. "It's not easy to sell a child, but we had no other option. We had already visited few hospitals for treatment," Sukhdevi added

The couple was stopped by police after they received information from people, they took immediate actions and stopped parents from spoiling their three-year-old child's life. Sukhdevi was suffering from bleeding which complicated her case.
