Inter State Kidney Racket Chased By Police In Delhi | Latest Political News
T Rajukumar Rao, the alleged kingpin of the interstate kidney racket busted in the capital last week, was arrested from Rajarhat, a suburb of Kolkata in the North 24 Parganas district in West Bengal, Tuesday evening. According to police sources, he had travelled across four states in the last seven days to evade arrest. Rao, 39, allegedly ran a kidney racket that spanned several states and neighbouring nations, and involved a vast network of middlemen, organ donors and recipients.
“During questioning, he told police he had been running the kidney racket for years and was connected to two similar rackets, one in Coimbatore in 2013 and the other in Jalandhar in 2015,” said sources. They added that in the last five years, Rao and his accomplices have been responsible for over 100 illegal kidney donations. Rao reportedly told police he was inducted into illegal organ trade in Chennai eight years ago, by a woman and her associate, who was a doctor.
He had worked as a middleman for the duo, but the racket was busted and the doctor arrested, said sources. Rao had shifted to Delhi and started running his own illegal organ racket, said police sources. Kolkata Police said another accused from Bengal, Moumita Maulik — a resident of Siliguri — was also arrested from the state. She is the wife of an already arrested accused, Devashish Maulik. Police sources said Moumita had sold her kidney to a patient from Kolkata a few weeks ago.
Delhi Police also arrested three others — two women and one man — Tuesday for allegedly selling their kidneys in exchange for money from middlemen involved in the racket, taking the total number of arrests to eight. Another team of Delhi Police has been sent to Kanpur to track down other middlemen and to verify addresses of some of the arrested accused.
