Since kidney recipients are paying up to Rs 3.7 million for the organ in India, we suspect that these suspects are part of an international kidney harvesting racket,” SP Rathore added. If convicted, the five could each face a jail sentence of up to 10 years and a fine of 200,000 Nepali rupees. Horrific!
