Thiruvananthapuram: In a major development in the 'illegal adoption' case, the DNA test of the child and the parents turned positive on Tuesday. It means the child adopted by the couple from Andhra Pradesh belonged to Thiruvananthapuram native Anupama S Chandran.

The samples were collected on Monday at Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology.

Anupama expressed her happiness over the test result. "I hope I will get my child back as soon as possible," she told the media persons here.

Anupama on Tuesday had alleged that the DNA sample collection procedure was rigged. “The health minister had promised that the DNA test procedures will be videographed. But this promise was not kept. I don’t trust the CCTV visuals. A big conspiracy is being made to protect the culprits. I don’t trust a departmental inquiry over the case,” Anupama told media.

The government had asked the family court here to stall the adoption to conduct the DNA test. A special committee was formed to bring the child to Kerala. The adoption procedure was in the final lap when the ordeal of Anupama and her husband Ajith hit the headlines.

Anupama S Chandran had raised allegations against her parents for kidnapping her baby soon after his birth and giving him for adoption through the Kerala State Council for Child Welfare (KSCCW) without her consent. The Council officials conspired with her parents to send the child away, she had alleged.
