A Faridabad court on Tuesday sentenced three doctors of a private hospital - including Dr Amit, a main accused in the infamous kidney that rocked Delhi and Gurgaon in 2008 - to 10 years' rigorous imprisonment in connection with the death of three Turkish nationals a few years ago.

Along with Dr Amit, the court sentenced Dr Upinder and Jaswant Singh for negligence in the treatment of three Turkish nationals - Mehmat Bijayat, Ismat Gunnar and Ahmed Yelidres - leading to their death.

They died in Sadbhavana hospital at Mathura Road, Ballabgarh, in 2003, 2004 and 2005, respectively. Their deaths came to light after the kidney racket involving Dr Amit, who was based in Gurgaon, surfaced in 2008.

Subsequently, a case was filed in Faridabad against Amit, Upinder and Jaswant Singh.

"The court sentenced all three, including my client Dr Amit to 10 years' imprisonment," said Anand Gupta, Dr Amit'scounsel.

The court also slapped a fined of Rs 10 lakh on Amit and Rs 11 lakh each on Upinder and Jaswant Singh.
