An update to this horrific story. Based on the following report, Dr. Kumar also known as 'Dr. Horror' has been arrested in Nepal and deported to India, where he will face charges for conducting more than 300 illegal kidney transplants.
Dr Amit Kumar, the alleged kingpin of the multi-crore rupees kidney racket, was on Saturday deported to India.
He was flown to New Delhi by Indian flight IC-814.
Forty-year-old Kumar, who was arrested from a jungle resort in Chitwan in southern Nepal on Thursday, was handed over to a two-member CBI team on Saturday evening.
CBI had registered a case against Kumar and others on Friday night on a request from the Haryana government under various sections of Indian Penal Code and Human Organ Transplant Act of 1994.
Nepalese authorities, which had on Friday announced that Kumar would be produced in court in Kathmandu on Sunday, acceded to India's request for immediate deportation.
The Indian doctor, who was believed to have carried out 500 illegal kidney transplants, claimed he was not a kidney dealer and had not committed any crime.
Nepalese police said after questioning Kumar that he had 'confessed' to carrying out over 300 kidney transplants in India.
Nepalese police said that Kumar 'admitted' to charging Rs three-four lakh for each transplant. He also 'confessed' to looking for hospitals in Nepal through an agent Pankaj Jha, who is now absconding.
