A childless woman was denied rights over an adopted child, as she did not follow the rules of adoption. The incident took place in Khammam. Varalakshmi, a childless nurse, took an abandoned infant home. Meanwhile, her mother-in-law lodged a complaint with the police against her, leading to Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) officials taking away the child. Rules had been flouted for adoption, they said. Varalakshmi, however, wept while giving away the child, whom she had nursed for a few days.
