Ghaziabad police have registered a case under several sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) against four persons for allegedly duping a man of his left kidney in 2001.
Superintendent of Police (City) Rahul Yadvndu said Kanti Gupta, sister of Devender Gupta, lodged a complaint and a case was registered at Sahibabad police station.
Devender had alleged that a private nursing home in Shahdara stole his kidney during an operation to remove stones.
“We have registered a case against Manoj Kumar, his father Lal Chand, the manager of Shanti Nursing Home at Shahdara and one Dr Rajender Pal,” the SP said.
As per Devender Gupta, his friend Manoj Kumar and his father Lal Chand took him to Shanti Nursing Home in Shahdara for an operation to remove stones in 2001.
“They kept me there for four days after the operation was done. In January 2009, I developed some problem in the right kidney area,” Gupta said.
“When I received the ultrasound report, I was shocked to see that my left kidney was missing. I immediately thought something must have happened during the 2001 operation,” he said on Friday.
Meanwhile, the police have started investigations in the case and have booked four people under Section 18 of Transplantation of Human Organs Act 1994, sections 326 and 420 of the IPC.
But no arrests were made in this connection till late Friday.
