Hyderabad Task force police Busted a Kidney Racket
The North Zone police busted an international kidney racket on Monday by arresting a senior doctor from Shi-rdi and three others. The gang had exploited at least 10 young victims in the last year. They would transfer the donors to hospitals in Sri Lanka and Iran and conduct the surgeries there to avoid Indian enforcement agencies. They would charge Rs 30 lakh for each kidney, but pay only Rs 3 lakh to the donor. The kingpin of the racket, Dr Hridesh Saxena, 60, had been practicing in a private hospital, Sai Hamara Shirdi, while actively hunting for donors, working with his counterparts in Iran and Sri Lanka.
