The mumbai Police have traced one of the kidney racket victims to Andhra Pradesh and has summoned him to the city on June 27 for an identification parade to pinpoint the main accused, Dr Amit Kumar alias Santosh Raut.
Amit Kumar and his brother Jeevan are in Mumbai to face charges of illegal removal of kidney from two roadside food vendors in Mahim. While one victim is not traceable, the other, Ramji Srinivas Rao, has been found in Andhra Pradesh.
The identification parade will be held by the end of the month, the police said. "Now that the victim has been traced, the next step for us is to hold the parade," said inspector A. Gawade of Mahim police station.
The victim will be taken to some hospitals in and around Delhi, including Gurgaon, where his kidney was allegedly removed. This is necessary to corroborate the claim of the victim, who has alleged that Dr Amit had performed the 'illegal operation' on him.
As Amit Kumar used to frequently change his place of operation, the victim would be taken to 4-5 hospitals to identify the place where the operation was conducted.
The Mumbai Police also claims to have obtained telephonic records of a series of calls between Amit, his brother Jeevan and three other co-accused, who were arrested earlier.
