DERGAON, July 6 - A tragic incident has created sensation among the residents of Dhansiri subdivision in Golaghat district. According to reports, a mother had to sell her newborn son to cope up with poverty.
The child was born to a couple � Anil Majhi and Mouchumi Majhi � of Sensua area at Barpathar mouza in Dhansiri.
