Delhi: Three arrested in kidney racket case

New Delhi : The Delhi Police on Tuesday arrested three donors, including two women from Uttar Pradesh’ Kanpur and another one from West Bengal’s Siliguri, in connection with the kidney racket case.

The police had earlier on June 3 bust a kidney racket gang, which allegedly used to deal with the transplantation of the organ, operating in a leading private hospital in the national capital.

According to sources, the police arrested five people and detained one in this regard.

The gang included two women and two clerical staff from the hospital.

The staff present in the private hospital used to inform Asim (allegedly the mastermind of the gang) about the need of kidney by the patients.
