Over the years we have reported on many of the horrors of capitalism, but for sheer brutality and cruelty this takes some beating. "A woman suspected of running a fake employment agency that organised the rape of young women and sale of their subsequent babies to childless couples has been arrested for kidnapping and wrongful confinement. Preeti and her husband Vinod, who both go by one name, ran a job agency in the Indian capital, New Delhi, offering maids to families, said a police spokesman. The couple allegedly lured women and girls by promising agency work, but instead confined them to a room where they were raped to make them pregnant. Their children were then sold to childless couples, the spokesman said." (Herald, 3 September) RD
