"The whole congregation is shocked, and we are all praying about it", said a nun who has been with the organization for 20 years but spoke on the condition of anonymity because she is not authorized to comment on its behalf.

The arrests on Tuesday and Wednesday followed the couple's complaint the charity worker had taken back the baby boy and kept their money.

At the time of the arrest, there were a dozen pregnant women living at the shelter, who have now been transferred to a government-run home.

In 2015, Missionaries of Charity had ended the process of adaption as they failed to comply with the latest adaption laws. "It is against our moral conviction", Missionaries of Charity spokeswoman Sunita Kumar told Reuters.

"We hear that babies are being sold in other homes as well and are determined to put a stop to it", he said. "We will take necessary precautions if anything like this has happened".
