Global Human Organ Trade

Police Hunt For Doctor

Police in India have broken up what they call a global organ-trafficking scheme and are hunting its alleged mastermind, a doctor identified as Amit Kumar. Authorities Tuesday asked for the public's help in tracking down Kumar after a raid last week on a home in Gurgaon, a city near New Delhi. Police characterized the scheme as an attempt to harvest kidneys from the poor and sell the organs to wealthy patients.
