Gurugram Police Arrests Five Bangladeshi Nationals in Kidney Transplant Gang Bust

Gurugram: In a significant operation, Gurugram Police apprehended five Bangladeshi nationals involved in an illegal kidney transplant racket spanning Haryana and Rajasthan. Among the arrested, three individuals were slated to receive kidneys, while two were set to donate their organs, each receiving two lakh rupees for their participation. The alleged mastermind, Mohammad Murtaza Ansari, hailing from Jharkhand, remains at large.

The arrested individuals have been identified as Mohammad Ahsanul (31), Shamim Mehndi Hasan (24), Nurul Islam (56), Syed Aqib Mahmood (25), and Mohammad Azad Hussain (30). They had entered India on medical visas, with Shamim Mehndi Hasan's visa listing Rabindranath Tagore Hospital Kolkata, and the others' visas specifying Fortis Hospital Jaipur. Following their arrest, they were presented before the court and subsequently remanded to judicial custody at Bhondsi jail.

Inspector Arjun Dev, in-charge of the Sadar police station, emphasized the illegal nature of organ donation and transplant activities, affirming that investigations are ongoing. The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) in Jaipur is also involved in probing the matter.

The alleged orchestrator of the illicit kidney trade, Mohammad Murtaza Ansari, remains elusive despite joint efforts by police forces in Rajasthan, Haryana, and Jharkhand to apprehend him. Ansari, reportedly active in a private hospital in Jaipur for seven months, specialized in facilitating kidney transplants. Gurugram Police have deployed five teams in pursuit of Ansari, even extending their search to Jharkhand, and are considering issuing a lookout circular against him.

The kidney transplant gang was exposed following a raid conducted by a joint team comprising the Chief Minister's Flying Squad, the District Health Department, and Gurugram Police at a hotel on April 4. The operation revealed that both donors and recipients were lodged at the Babil Palace Hotel in Gurugram before and after the transplants.

Mohammad Murtaza Ansari, the alleged ringleader, reportedly charged exorbitant fees, taking a minimum of ten lakh rupees from recipients. Additionally, he would enlist impoverished individuals from Bangladesh, offering them a total of four lakh rupees for agreeing to donate their kidneys.
