Illegal blood trade racket busted, 3 held

Wednesday, 12 September 2018 | Divya Modi | Ranchi

Marwari Yuva Manch and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara foundation together held a sting operation and revealed the scam of illegal trading of blood in the city. The operation lasted for two days at RIMS and Alam Hospital with people from the two organisations keeping a watchful eye on the brokers.

One Mohammad Guddu (35) from Bahubazar and his group would sell blood at Rs.3500- 4000 to the patients. Guddu along with Madan Kumar (45) and a minor girl Ayesha Khan (name changed) are now in police custody. The main accused Kishan Mishra is still on the run. A case against all the accused is registered in Bariatu police station.

Tushar Panjwani, President Marwari Yuva Manch said, “This is a disgrace to humanity. Such incidents harm the society and those involved should be severely punished.”

The gang involved would change the UID numbers of the doctors, take blood from the social organizations on the pretext of giving it to the poor and in fact sell it. On being reported about such incidents, the two organisations formed a ten member team and did the sting operation.

Zindagi Milegi Dobara, President Ashwini Rajgarhia said,” Such incidents are frightening and hamper the reliability of an organisation. This needs to be put under check.”

Apart from Panjwani and Rajgarhia, others involved were Ashish Agarwal, Sanjay Bajaj, Raju Agarwal and Mukesh Jalan to name a few.
