DCP (task force) V B Kamalasan Reddy revealed that these brokers search hospitals for dialysis patients and then broker a deal for a new kidney with poor people.

"Kidney donor's remuneration ranges between Rs 1.2 lakh and Rs 1.75 lakh, while the broker's commission varies from Rs 50,000 to Rs 1.25 lakh, depending upon the type of service rendered," Kamalasan Reddy said, adding the gang was implicated in 23 cases at nine hospitals.
