Ambala, Feb 18 (UNI) Ambala City Civil Hospital kidney racket victim Kanta Rani (50) has died after struggling for four months in the PGI Chandigarh.
Kanta was cremated at her native town Shahabad today.
The surgeon treating her from the hospital here had allegedly removed both of her kidneys after she was admitted with complaint of stone in her stomach.

In the meantime, the civil hospital doctor who had performed operation on Kanta was charge sheeted after investigations made by the doctors at hospital, the CMO informed UNI. He had left the service and was practising privately, he added.
