Indian police have found that the kidney racketeers, had sent as many as 21 people from different parts of Andra Pradesh to Colombo for kidney surgeries in the last few months.
Two of the three arrested accused, D.S. Pavan Srinivas, an MBA student, and N. Venkatesham, were working for the racket led by a Lankan doctor, who would give them huge commissions for every case.
Sriniva, had already sold his organ to the same Lankan doctor several months ago.
Another accused, Surya Narayana, worked as an agent to mislead police investigation and media.
The Lankan doctor allegedly sells each kidney for 3 to 5 million rupees to hospitals in Sri Lanka, and pays 500 thousand to 1.5 million rupees to the victims.
