Five individuals, including a doctor, were apprehended in connection with this heinous crime. Among those arrested were Mahadevi, also known as Priyanka Bahubali Jain from Bailhongal, Dr. Abdulgafar Hussainsaab Ladkhan from Hanchinal in Saudatti, Chandan Subedar from Shigihali in Bailhongal, Pavitra Somappa Madiwalar from Sampagaon in Bailhongal, and Praveen Manjunath Madiwalar from Dharwad.

The investigation was initiated after Rajkumar Ningappa Rathod, the coordinator of the Government Adoption Center of the District Child Protection Department at Ramtirth Nagar, lodged a complaint with the Malmaruti Police Station.

Subsequently, the child was brought to Belagavi and sold for Rs. 1,40,000. Acting swiftly on this information, the police apprehended the suspects, with Mahadevi Jain being detained and the infant girl being admitted to the district hospital.
