Kidney racket: Hospital's transplant license suspended


The license of prestigious Hiranandani hospital in Mumbai has been suspended for organ transplants after five doctors, including the CEO and Medical Director of the hospital, were arrested on Tuesday in connection with kidney selling scandal.

CEO Dr Sujit Chatterjee, medical director Dr Anurag Naik, Dr Mukesh Shetye, Dr Mukesh Shaha and Dr Prakash Shetye were arrested under the Transplantation of Human Organs Act, he said.

The racket came to light when the police were tipped off that a kidney transplant operation had been scheduled on July 14 at the privately-run Hiranandani Hospital where donor and recipient were not related.

The operation on Brijkishor Jaiswal, the recipient, was stopped as police found that the woman who was donating him the kidney was not his wife, contrary to the papers submitted by the duo.
