Kidney transplantation racket rears its ugly head again


It is a familiar theme that never seems to go away – the trade in organs for transplantation. This time the kidney transplantation racket uncovered in Noida, Uttar Pradesh involved Bangladeshi citizens as well as Indians. Allegedly the Bangladeshi man was 'donating' his kidney in exchange for financial benefits. An FIR was lodged against five persons under various sections of the Indian Penal Code for forgery of documents and cheating as well as the Transplantation of Human Organs and Tissues Act, 1994 and the Foreigners Act, 1984.
