Kolkata Police to scan CCTV footages
Kolkata: Kolkata Police would go through the footages of the surveillance cameras of a private hospital on EM Bypass in connection with the recent kidney racket incident.
A communiqué has been sent to the hospital seeking CCTV footages which will help the cops in their investigation if the accused, who have already been arrested, were actually visiting the hospital.
In the interrogation, the accused told the investors that they used to visit the hospital to sell kidney. It may be mentioned here that the police on Monday arrested four persons for their alleged involvement in operating a kidney racket from the city. In the face of interrogation, the accused told the police that Teherun along with the couple were going to a private hospital to sell kidneys and they were supposed to get Rs 3-4 lakh for one kidney.
The cops also came to know that the market price of a kidney is around Rs 10 lakh but the accused used to get Rs 4 lakh. Police suspect that Asfaq, who is a broker, used to get the remaining amount. The cops will examine the CCTV footages to ascertain if Asfaq used to visit the hospital in actual.
