“We have detained the hospital’s officials and the kidney receiver after the hospital was found doing illegal work by tampering the documents and taking out kidney of the third persons whose family relations could not be established to do so,” SP Thapaliya said.
Only the family members having their three generation relations and relatives having blood/bone relation can donate the kidney in Nepal. The police have kept the victim’s (kidney donator) name confidential citing privacy. We have been investigating into other sides of the incident as there might have involved a broker to manage this third person to donate the kidney instead of a genuine donator.
“We have rescued the donator (victim) from Bhaktapur three days ago, and told us reality related to the incident,” he said.The victim told us that he was assured of providing a hefty amount, but, he got Rs. 300,000 in his bank account. SP Thapaliya said that the victim (kidney donator) fairly literate, and could not write his name.
