Mumbai, Jun 16 (UNI) Kidney racket kingpin Amit Kumar and his brother Jivan Kumar, who were being brought here by a Mumbai police team from Ambala by the Paschim Express, could not be produced before a local court as their train was delayed by nine hours.
Currently in CBI custody, they were yesterday brought from Ambala to Mumbai by the Police team in connection with a case registered against the duo in the metropolis. The police procured production warrants for the accused for bringing them here.
The team, headed by Sub-Inspector Sudhir Dakvi, boarded the Express with the two accused yesterday afternoon.
The handing over of the accused to the Mumbai police was delayed there due to legal formalities to be completed by the local central jail authorities even after the Mumbai police had obtained the production warrant from the local court.
Metropolitan Magistrate Court of the city had issued a production warrant against Dr Amit, Dr Jivan and one Dr Upender in 2005 on charges of removing kidney of a person in Mumbai in 2005.
While Dr Amit and Neeraj were lodged in Ambala Central Jail, Dr Upinder, another accused, has been admitted to civil hospital in Ambala for the last three days and is kept in the prison ward there.
He could not board the train as the doctors in the civil hospital had stated that Dr Upinder was not fit to travel.
