Multi-Crore Kidney Racket Could Have Been Busted Eight Years Back
As the recent kidney racket continues to† shock the nation, Delhi Police vouch that the† three-storied† house, from where Dr Amit Kumar's multi-crore kidney transplant racket† boomed , was earlier sealed by† in connection with an illegal organ transplant case.

This was† eight years back , in December 2000, and not surprisingly, it involved the same man.

According to Delhi Police, the Gurgaon police was advised to keep an eye on the house situated in† Gurgaon, Sector 23. In spite of this, it was reopened and put to use for the same unscrupulous activities.

Delhi Police now allege that the local police were in cahoots with the accused and the illegal operations in the house would not have been possible without their consent. "We don't understand how even after booking a person and sealing his premises for an illegal activity, the local police did not pay attention to this racket. It is amazing that the same premises were used with such audacity. It would not have been possible without the tacit support of the local police," says a Delhi Police officer.

"We had sealed the house as it was being used a clinic for organ transplants. If it had been sealed, it was the responsibility of the local police to see whether the status quo was maintained. We had informed the local police, the clinic could not have operated without their connivance," the officer adds.

When asked for comments Gurgaon police commissioner Mohinder Lal said that he was not aware whether the Sector 23 premises was sealed by Delhi Police crime branch or not. "We have asked the Delhi police to provide the details of the raid and the cases that were leveled against Dr. Amit Kumar and his team," he added.

†In† December 2000,† Delhi Police† registered a case on the complaint of T. Nag Raju, a canteen employee at the Hazrat Nizammuddin railway station. The 12 accused were identified as Dr Amit Kumar, Ravi Kumar, Kata Kumar, Budida Vakteshwar, Gurel Janakram, Antony Andrew, Rinki Reddy, Mohammad Rejwan, Dr Jeevan Ramesh, Dr Rajesh Kumar Gupta, Dr Satprakash Gupta and Dr Upendra Kumar.† According to the police ,the addresses furnished by the accused in the† records were found to be fake.

Delhi Police had prepared the first charge sheet on January 23, 2001.
