The police officials questioned Dr Aggarwal about the procedure and legal formalities for conducting transplant surgeries. There was no need to go to the authorization committee if the DNAs of the recipient and the donor matched and the surgeon could go ahead, even if the donor was not a kin of the patient, he explained.

The doctor laid the entire blame on the donors and recipients and said the entire manipulation was done at their level.

Dr Geeta was asked about the pathology laboratory in her name, which also has a collection center of Dr Lal Path Labs, to which the swapped samples of donors were sent.
