For the last 2 years in Kerala, the organ trade is rampant well said by the inquiry report submitted by the Crime Branch (CB) of Thrissur to the State police Chief in which some of the public servant’s name is highlighted.
IG, CB, S.Sreejeeth has recommended the registration of FIR for further investigation around hospitals and other regions too. He also said that many of the donors have no connection with the donee and moreover the middlemen working for hospitals have deceptively induced the needy and economically disadvantaged families.
Due to the pandemic, many of the donors had to face the cash windfall due to which they had no employment for which they agreed to such transplantations when they had no relation with the recipient. The member of 31 families in Kodungallur was deceived mainly for the kidney by offering money as the family belonged to below poverty line (BPL).
An incident regarding the same was reported on December 2, 2009, where Ahin VJ of Vazhaparambil House, Muvattupuzha was denied treatment by two hospitals for a Head Injury. He was declared brain dead after which his liver and two kidneys were harvested by the private hospital and the same matter got buried for 2 years which after the report of July 1, 2016, came eye to eye
A number of people have been cheated and public servants have disregarded the racket due to which it resulted in the assisting of the crime. Therefore, it is prudent to register the FIR under 417,119and 120b of IPC and punishment for commercial dealings in a human organ of section 19(a),(b),(c), and (d)of the Transplantation of Human organ Act 1994 against all the accused who are involved in cheating and such criminal conspiracy.
The scale of the racket is more extensive so for this Deputy Inspector General of Police, Thrissur, S. Surendran will head the investigation team. Mr. Behera and Mr. Sreejith will supervise the probe. This is a matter of serious concern as lucrative people are violating the rights of some helpless people during this pandemic.v
