A Delhi court has issued a production warrant for Amit Kumar — the alleged kingpin of a kidney transplant racket — in a money laundering case after the police failed to produce him in the court. District Judge PS Teji sought Amit’s production, saying, “Accused Amit Kumar has not been produced from Central Jail, Ambala.
Now, matter is adjourned to November 22, 2012 for prosecution evidence. Let production warrants of the accused Amit Kumar be issued for the date fixed.” The multi-crore rupee scandal had surfaced in January 2008, when police arrested several people for running a kidney transplant racket in Gurgaon. Amit was arrested in Nepal in February 2008. The police informed the court that Amit could not produced in the Delhi court since he was being produced in a Haryana court in some other case.
The court is recording prosecution evidence in the case registered against Amit by enforcement directorate for violating foreign exchange laws and stashing black money abroad. Besides Amit, his brother Jeevan Kumar, his three aides Raghuvinder Singh, Rajiv Chanana and Sanjay Gupta are also facing trial in the court for the same offence.
