520    The decision of the Australian adoptive parents shocked 
       senior Australian judges interviewed by Foreign 
       Correspondent. "It's a criminal offence in many places. I 
       think it's an appalling thing." - Australian judge The 
       extraordinary case of the twin boy left behind in India 
       was first revealed by Foreign Correspondent and ABC News 
       earlier this year. But his identity and fate have stayed a
       mystery. "Was the child sold? Was the child left on the 
       street? What has happened to the child?" - Australian 
       judge "Whether he's been placed in a rich, well to do 
       family where he gets every amenity, we don't know." - Arun
       Dohle, child protection advocate Reporter Samantha Hawley 
       teams up with two Indian child protection campaigners as 
       they weave through Delhi's labyrinthine bureaucracy and 
       backstreets on a hunt for the twins' birth records, the 
       boy's adoption papers and details of the surrogate mother 
       and Australian parents. Hawley reveals how the case 
       worried Australian consular officials in Delhi. Australian
       High Commission staff tried desperately to persuade the 
       Australian family to take both twins back home. But 
       Canberra sent approval for citizenship and a single 
       passport to be given to just one child - the girl - 
       despite international commercial surrogacy being outlawed 
       in the Australian parents' home state. "I would describe 
       it as aiding and abetting the Australian couple abandoning
       the child." - senior New Delhi lawyer Shekar Nephade "We 
       have done everything legal." - Australian father of the 
       boy left behind In this tragic story about one baby boy 
       who became the by-product of an unruly $500 million 
       industry, two leading judges tell Foreign Correspondent 
       it's now time for the Australian Government to take a lead
       in reforming the system.
