The Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic order founded by Mother Teresa in India, said it was “carefully looking into” charges of baby trafficking leveled against a nun and a worker at one of its homes.

Indian authorities sealed a home which provides shelter for pregnant unmarried women run by the charity in eastern Jharkhand state on Thursday and charged a nun and a worker there with baby trafficking.

The arrests were made after the state’s Child Welfare Committee registered a complaint that the women sold an infant born to an unwed mother at the Nirmal Hriday shelter in the state capital, Ranchi, to a childless couple.

Nirmal Hriday means “pure heart” in Hindi. There have been a number of reports of babies and children being trafficked through charity-run homes and hospitals in India, which campaigners say is driven by a long waiting list for adoption.

The Missionaries of Charity stopped organizing adoptions in India in 2015 saying they disagreed with government rules that made it easier for single, divorced, and separated people to adopt children.
