CARA CEO had clarified that this was a false story and the child is currently named ‘Ganga’ (and not Pihu as Kapri tweeted) and will be placed in State Government’s Adoption Agency. She will be rehabilitated through a legal process.

The Ministry of WCD had also tweeted on June 15 that the child has been placed in the hospital for interim care.

However, despite the warning, the couple continued to post pictures of the child. Kapri even put up the picture of the child as his display picture.

Later, after being pointed out by social media users that the couple has been violating CARA guidelines and even JJ Act despite the warning from CARA CEO, Kapri started deleting his tweets. He said their only concern is the health of the child and that they will continue the fight to get ‘that’ little baby.

Despite CARA guidelines that the child will be rehabilitated through adoption with an already registered couples who are already on the waiting list and Kapri and his wife keep on insisting on adopting that particular child out of turn.

On Sunday, journalist Abhishek Upadhyay had accused filmmaker Vinod Kapri of having used the tragedy of a newborn to promote himself and his movie ‘Pihu’ which was supposedly set to release on Netflix in the following days.

A few weeks back, an emotional story of a journalist couple ‘adopting’ a baby rescued from a garbage dump in Nagaur, Rajasthan made rounds on social media evoking strong sentiment amongst the social media users. A journalist couple, Vinod Kapri and Sakshi Joshi, had warmed everyone’s hearts after they had announced that they would be adopting a baby girl found abandoned near a garbage mound in Rajasthan’s Nagaur area.

In a series of tweets, Upadhyay claimed that Kapri had planted stories in Indian as well as international media houses that he had already adopted the newborn child. However, Nagaur administration has clarified that the formalities are yet to start and a committee will take a decision on who will be the adoptive parents of the child.
