Kidney racket: Son of DJB engineer surrenders before court
In a fresh development in the Indraprastha Apollo kidney racket case, two persons who are the relatives of Ashutosh (son of Bhule Singh, a J E in Delhi Jal Board) have surrendered before the court, however, later they were granted bail.
Ashutosh was already arrested by the Delhi Police as he had received the kidney from Umesh, a resident of Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh through the touts who are also in police’s net.
Meanwhile, SIT of Delhi Police has completed its interrogation of senior nephrologists — Dr Ashok Sarin and Dr D K Aggarwal — the sources close to investigation told Millennium Post.
“Along with the duo, the SIT has questioned other doctors who were a part of the hospital’s Integral Authorization Committee. However, two more senior doctors of Apollo are likely to be quizzed whose names came up during the probe,” one of the source said.
In the near future, once the interrogation sessions with the doctors are completed, a comprehensive report will be filed after which action will be taken against them. “So far in the investigation, it came to light that almost all the doctors whose names have cropped up are indirectly involved in the illegal kidney transplant. However, direct involvement of some of the doctors has also been found in the case, but lack of proper evidence is the reason that is holding the SIT back,” a senior police official, requesting anonymity said.
Delhi Police are all set to book the doctors under the charges of negligence and other relevant sections of the Transplant of Human Organ Act (THOA), said sources.
