He may be on the run, but kidney transplant racket kingpin Dr Amit Kumar has not defaulted for the February loan payment for the mansion he bought in Canada last year for his family.

The monthly mortgage payment of nearly $3000 (about Rs 1.25 lakh) was paid on time, a week after Dr Kumar went underground following the January 24 raids on his Gurgaon clinic.

Canadian authorities said they were working closely with the Indian police to help them nab Dr Kumar, who is now on Interpol’s most wanted list. Interpol Ottawa is in touch with the Indian authorities on this matter and all necessary information is being shared to help nab Dr Kumar, RCMP spokeswoman Sgt Sylvie Tremblay told HT.

She, however, refused to give further details if Dr Kumar had entered Canada. She wouldn’t comment if his family was interviewed in their Brampton home for leads to nail the fugitive.

Dr Kumar’s wife and their two sons, aged 4 and 5, are believed to be holed up in their Canada home. Dr Kumar was last seen in the Brampton city neighbourhood around Christmas.

If caught in Canada, Dr Kumar could be investigated on how he passed the stringent immigration process with a forged identity.

Dr Kumar, who uses at least six fake identities, had last year bought the house along with his wife in Brampton on the outskirts of Toronto. The $610,000 mansion, financed by Royal Bank of Canada, wore a deserted look on Monday.
