Kidney smuggler Amit Kumar had strong connections in Nepal, and was all set to invest in a hospital in Kathmandu.

Within hours of the arrest, Nepal Police officials have found that Amit Kumar had been to Nepal three times during the last one year and has seven associates in the Himalayan nation, and all of them are absconding.

“He (Amit Kumar) wanted to start a hospital for kidney transplants,” Upendra Kanta Aryal, SSP of KMPCD said, adding that his brother Jeevan Kumar was specially assigned for the Nepal project.

Jeevan Kumar reportedly got in touch with Pankaj Jha from Sunsari district in southeastern Nepal to start the new kidney transplant hospital in Kathmandu. Jha is a partner in a private nursing home in north Kathmandu.
