One Arrested in Connection With Gurgaon Kidney Scam
Police in Gurgaon today announced that they had arrested the driver of Dr. Upender, the doctor who was hand in glove with kidney scam kingpin Dr Amit Kumar.

The driver was picked up from Palwal near Faridabad.

Dr Amit Kumar is yet to be nabbed, and Gurgaon Police have applied for a red corner notice against him. The police are conducting raids at six properties owned by Dr Kumar in Gurgaon and on others across the country.

The kidney racket and the mastermind behind it have been making headlines ever since it was exposed last week.

The scam came to light on the basis of a complaint from Pappu, a labourer from Meerut. Forty-year-old Pappu said that he came to Gurgaon from Meerut two years ago, looking for a job. But claims one of his kidneys was removed without his knowledge.

With a family to support and no money, he left for Moradabad a few days ago to work as a labourer.

There he met Shahid, the tout who had brought him to the Gurgaon hospital, when he had fallen ill.

''I heared the tout talking about a kidney sale. I told him you first lured me and now you are trying to dupe someone else. I immediately went to the police,'' said Pappu.

That complaint ultimately led to Friday's police raid in Gurgaon, exposing the kidney racket that had been going on for the past seven years.
