MALACCA: The woman in Ipoh who “pawned” her baby for RM3,500 will be reunited with the eight-month-old, thanks to a religious organisation here.
The Shirdi Sai Association of Durian Tunggal will hand K. Kanagavali the cash and the interest involved.
Association chairman Dr M. Jegan Murugan said they were also prepared to offer more financial assistance to Kanagavali.
“First, we will settle the loan so that mother and baby can be united. Although she is not from Malacca, we decided to step in on humanitarian grounds,” he said yesterday.
On Thursday, it was reported that Kanagavali was trying to get her baby son back from one Norhidayu Badrol who demanded full repayment first.
Kanagavali, who has five children, had wanted the money to settle 15 traffic summonses slapped on her express bus driver husband which prevented him from working.
It was reported that Kanagavali had handed her baby to Norhidayu two months ago and that the woman from Puchong had in-laws in Malim Nawar.
Norhidayu is said to be a close friend of Kanagavali’s neighbour, who sometimes took care of the baby during weekends.
Kanagavali had said her husband only recently got his job back after the summonses were settled, adding that she was now able to pay RM1,000 first to get her son back.
