Suresh Prajapathi, who was arrested by the Indian police after busting a kidney transplantation racket recently, has told his interrogators that gaps in the legal provisions helped him exploit the kidney donors and recipients.

Hailing from Ahmedabad, the racket mastermind made use of doctors in Ahmedabad and Sri Lanka to operate the racket by offering money to them.

Investigations indicated that the racketeers were paying 500 US dollars bribe to the ethical committee for giving permission to each kidney transplantation surgery.

Out of 3 million rupee being paid to the conspirator by the recipient of kidney, nearly 1.5 million rupees is given to the hospital management.

While 500 thousand rupees goes to the donor, an equal sum is taken by the conspirator.

Travel expenses of the donors and bribe amounts to the ethical committee are borne out of the remaining sum.

A five to ten member team, sent by Suresh Prajapathi to Sri Lanka, roams around the offices and hospital to find the slots for kidney surgeries in the four hospitals involved in the racket.
