The auto drivers got alerted and informed the police. Headed by inspector Hari Kumar, a police team posing as a prospective buyer, approached the man. He told him that he would give him Rs 3.5 lakh for the boy to be agreed by the man. Policemen showed him the money.

Then he came with the boy and the police arrested him. The boy was unaware of the deal. He believed that Mainool was looking for a job for him. The teenager told police that Mainool was his neighbor. He got a job in a teashop in Guwahati. But to be left unpaid. The money went to Mainool’s pocket.
