The chairperson of the transplant authorization board at Indus International Hospital, Dera Bassi, has been booked in a kidney sale racket case. According to sources, he has not shown up for work for over a week. The alleged racket was first uncovered on March 18 when a donor complained to the police.
Surinder Pal Singh Bedi, the chairperson of the transplant authorization board at Indus International Hospital located in Dera Bassi has been booked by the police for his alleged involvement in a kidney sale racket case. The racket was first uncovered on March 18 when a Sirsa resident ‘donor’ complained of the organ trade to the police.
According to reports, as many as seven cases of illegal kidney transplantation are said to have taken place in the racket. These cases involve donors and recipients from Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Banur, Kurukshetra, Bareilly, and Meerut. They are said to have forged documents to show blood relations between the donor and recipient for monetary gains.
Bedi is said to have cleared 33 cases of organ transplant at the private hospital in the last two years. While Bedi and other hospital staff have denied any wrongdoing, hospital coordinator Abhishek and middleman Raj Narayan have already been arrested. As for Bedi, he has not reported to work for over a week and his family is staying tight-lipped about where he might be.
The Punjab Medical Council (PMC) has said that if the doctors are found guilty, it will take the necessary action against them.
