Amid all the debate and denial by the government of any breach of Aadhaar data, a case of illegal kidney transplant has emerged in Guntur where Aadhaar records were forged and produced for the transplant.
The incident has come to light in Narasaraopet of Guntur district where the recipient forged the Aadhaar details and produced the donor as his relative to get the illegal transplant done.
During the investigation conducted by the Narasaraopet tahsildar, it was revealed that donor was actually no way related to the patient as claimed and a police complaint was lodged.
Investigation has revealed that the accused Venkateswarlu Naik of Telangana used a fake Aadhaar card in the name of Ravuri Ravi Chowdary, door number 12-3-35/1, Prakash Nagar, Narasaraopet and produced it as an evidence that he is a relative of Siva
Ramakrishna whose both kidneys failed and was undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Guntur.
But as per law only a blood relative can be a donor, the entire conspiracy was hatched and executed with a fake Aadhaar card.
The donor Naik, a tribal, reportedly agreed to donate his kidney for Rs 4 lakh.
Now police is investigating whether this illegal donation is only a stray case or just the tip of an organised racket in the district.
A case of forgery and cheating has been registered and further investigation is on with police probing a possible involvement of more people.
