Delhi Police Busts International Organ Racket: Doctor and Six Others Arrested, Bangladeshi Mastermind

The Delhi Police has dismantled a major international organ transplant racket, resulting in the arrest of seven individuals, including a doctor. The mastermind behind this illicit operation is reportedly from Bangladesh, with both donors and recipients originating from the same country, according to Delhi Police Commissioner Amit Goel.

The individuals involved in the racket are believed to have strong connections to Bangladesh. Commissioner Goel stated, “We have arrested a person named Russell, who used to arrange patients and donors, and a female doctor involved in the transplants has also been arrested.” The investigation into the seven arrested individuals is ongoing.

The racket, which has been operational since 2019, charged between ₹25-30 lakh for each transplant. The arrested doctor is linked to two or three hospitals and facilitated organ transplants despite knowing that the donors and recipients were not blood relatives, thus implicating her in the conspiracy.

India’s Transplantation of Human Organs Act (2014) permits organ donations only from immediate blood relatives, such as parents and siblings. Indian living donors cannot donate organs to foreign recipients unless they are close relatives, with the relationship certified by a senior member of the recipient’s embassy. These cases are only considered if no Indian patient is eligible for the organ donation.
