 Kidney Investigation Focuses on South India

The illegal kidney transplant case, which was busted in Gurgaon, is now focusing on South India. Police investigating the case say will visit the hospitals in Chennai and Coimbatore where the transplants were conducted.

"The team will collect the relevant records and question the doctors and hospital staff to find out whether they have any nexus with the racket," a source told The Calcutta Telegraph.


Police may also raid a diagnostic center in the city. Reports indicate this is where the tests were initially carried out.
