The Rachakonda Special Operations Team along with the Neredmet police busted a fake online kidney sale racket and arrested an agent from Tamil Nadu on Friday. The suspect cheated people to the tune of several lakhs on the pretext of selling and buying kidneys.

According to the police, S Dheenathayalan Suryasivram Shiva (30), of Madurai in Tamil Nadu, uploaded his profile on a website called Kidney Donors Buyers Network. When clients wanting to sell their kidneys contacted him, he claimed to be working as an agent for what he called Kidney Donor Federation and asked them to register their names with the federation.

“He insisted that they pay Rs 15,000 online towards registration fee. He offered more than a crore to the donors and told them that 50 pc of the amount will be deposited into their bank accounts and the balance after surgery,” Mahesh M Bhagwat, Police Commissioner, Rachakonda, said.

He also gave them option of selecting hospitals in Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai. Later, the suspect sent them fake Kindey Donor Federation certificates and text messages of Rs 1 crore transaction done into the seller’s account. After receiving the advance amount, he demanded more for medical examinations and processing fee. The police organised a decoy operation and caught Shiva at Neredmet, and seized fake documents.
