Human Organs For Sale

By Vishwanath

Yup, you saw it right!!!

All this has happened in India very recently, so called the worlds largest Democratic country in the World.... Their have been many such cases so far.. But the loop holes in the law making makes it a easy get away for the law breakers... What should we do to such people who take away the organs from poor innocent people & sell it to the others to make money... Where is law & order? Below is the complete details of the case...

A kidney racket has been unearthed by the police in Gurgaon (IN Delhi, Capital of INDIA). A house in a posh locality had been converted into a hospital and a flourishing trade in sale of kidneys was running there. There were at least three doctors involved and the ‘donors’ used to be brought here by agents who worked in different cities in UP. The victims would be enticed with attractive offers and once the operation was done, they would be sent back with some monetary benefits while the kidneys would be sold to foreigners for huge sums of money. At a rough estimate, this setup had performed at least 500 such transactions..... While this might have shocked many, it is not new to this part of the world. A search on Google of ‘kidney rackets in India’ elicited plenty of information, some of which I am indicating here with links were the complete story can be had....

Illegal human organ trade thrives in Asia

Illegal human organ trade has risen considerably in Asia during the past decades. People from developed nations turn towards Asia because a large population here lives under the poverty line and people easily donate their organs for a small amount.

DESPITE a strict vigil by the government, an illegal trade in kidney exists in West Bengal. In a recent incident, the State police, with the help of an alert citizen, arrested an operative of the gang involved in the illegal trade of human organs at Sheoraphuli town in Hooghly district, 45 km from Kolkata. Preliminary investigations led to the alleged mastermind of the racket, Laltu Roy of Kolkata, who had links in Chennai. The racketeers lured, through newspaper advertisements, impoverished, desperate people into "donating" their kidneys for Rs.60,000 or even less. The going rate for a donor kidney is currently between Rs.1 lakh and Rs.1.5 lakhs.

These snippets cover different parts of the country and are of different dates – West Bengal August-2003, Gujarat 20/1/2007, Tamil Nadu 23/1/2007, Bangalore 3/9/2007, Chandigarh 21/9/2007 and Chennai 11/10/2007.

The administration cannot pretend ignorance; it should step in to contain this menace with a firm hand.

this is very sad fact. i guess the person that donate their organs really having financial problem and thats the only thing they can do. i watched the programs about this few months back and get me into tears. so sad sad life... what make it more sad was they are some people take advantage of the situation. lets say the kidney price in market around 10000 USD but the person who donate it only got 1000rupee. something like that.. very sad fact of life.

Everybody is right and Everybody is wrong, its depend where you stand
