Kidney Business Raided in Rawalpindi
Police action was initiated on the report of a patient who sold his kidney to a gang but received no compensation. The officer, quoting the complainant, said the culprits offered him a handsome amount in case of selling his kidney but deprived him of both. The gang was running a kidney business in a highly organized way and never left any evidence behind; an investigation officer told the media. A judicial magistrate handed over the five accused to Lower Mall police on four-day physical remand. It is learnt that the gang would approach donors and buyers, and prepare fake relationship certificates to provide a cover to the illegal transplant.
