Probe stalled in kidney scam case

The Deccan Chronicle on Saturday reported that the investigation into a kidney scam case was stalled with the police and health authorities were holding each other responsible for the probe. The director of medical services, who the police say is responsible for the investigation, has told the newspaper that the police is more suitable for investigating the case. The police, in particular, the CB-CID, has said that according to the law – The Transplantation of Human Organs Act – it is up to the directorate of medical services to conduct the probe.

So far, no charge sheet has been filed in the case and racket remains, for public purposes at least, uninvestigated.

Licences of at least 13 hospitals had been suspended after the kidney scam was exposed. The licences were lated renewed on “humanitarian grounds” saying that it was the patients who were ultimately affected.

A search on google failed to reveal details. More news regarding the case may be posted in the comments section.
