Struck by extreme poverty, a woman allegedly sold her six-day-old son in Odisha’s Cuttack district. Hailing from Panchasaranga Balarampur village under Nischintakoili block in Cuttack district, Pratima Panda took the step on Friday. 

According to sources, Partima recently gave birth to a baby boy at Nischintakoili Community Health Centre. She was not in a condition to take care of her newborn baby due to her poor financial condition.
