THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Family Court has strongly criticized the Child Welfare Committee regarding the illegal adoption of Anupama's child. The court noted that clear details of the adoption license are not provided. The court's sharp criticism came when the committee asked for more time to submit a final report on the matter. The court also directed the committee to produce the original license immediately. The case was adjourned for a detailed hearing.

The Child Welfare Committee responded to the court's criticism that an application had been made to extend the license and that the investigation is in its final stages. The Child Welfare Committee asked the court to give it till the 30th of this month to complete the investigation.

A police team has left for Andhra Pradesh to bring back Anupama's baby. The group includes three police officers and a member of the Child Welfare Committee. The baby was adopted by a couple in Andhra Pradesh. Once the baby is brought to Thiruvananthapuram, a DNA test will be done first.

The police team left for Andhra from Thiruvananthapuram airport this morning. Though they will reach Andhra Pradesh in the afternoon, it is not clear when they will return. Once here, the District Child Protection Officer is responsible for the care of the baby.

The Child Welfare Committee took steps to bring the baby back after the court asked to suspend the adoption process
