Moradabad, Jan 29: The network of the kidney transplant racket, which was busted recently by Moradabad Police, was spread over as many as 48 countries.

This fact has come to light in the police investigations so far. The countries included the US, Russia, Canada and Greece, Moradabad SSP Prem Prakash said here today. Mr Prakash said the kingpin of the racket, Dr Amit Agarwal, made use of his Canadian wife's contacts in foreign countries to spread his network of illegal kidney transplants. Several Delhi hospitals, dialysis centres and medical institutes were also under scanner for their possible complicity in the case. Meanwhile, the police had applied for remand of the four accused in the case.

Sources said the Gurgaon Police, on the leads provided by Moradabad Police, were already investigating the properties owned by Dr Agarwal.
