Amritsar kidney scam: Five doctors, police officer held guilty
Saturday November 2, 2013 10:01 PM, IANS

The district and sessions court here Saturday held five doctors of the Government Medical College and a policeman guilty for their role in the Amritsar kidney scam exposed by the Punjab Police in 2002.

The guilty include former college principal O.P. Mahajan and doctors Jagdish Gargi, S.K. Grover, H.S. Bhutani and Rajinder Singh.

A Haryana Police inspector, Suresh Kumar, was also held guilty of threatening a minor boy and forcing him to donate his kidney, fraudulently taken out by the doctors. Kumar was the recipient.

Police took the doctors into custody immediately after the verdict. The court will announce the quantum of sentence Nov 8.

The court held these doctors guilty of conspiracy in the kidney racket. Mahajan was the chairman and Gargi a member of the kidney transplant authorisation committee at that time. The panel allowed kidney donation and transplant despite rules not allowing donation by a minor.
