TINSUKIA: Following Dharamtul and Dibrugarh, the kidney trade touts have spread their tentacles in Tinsukia district also. A case came to light on Friday after a person who sold his kidney was denied the contract money by the tout.

Rup Kumar Singh, a resident of Dhekiajuri Bongali Gaon, Tinsukia, told media person that after his financial condition worsened due to the COVID pandemic, one Pompy from Guwahati suggested him to sell his kidney at Rs 4 lakh and he was paid Rs 2 lakh in cash as advance. As planned, Singh was taken to Kolkata from Guwahati and was admitted to RNT Hospital in Kolkata where his kidney was allegedly removed, said Singh.

On being released from the hospital, Singh was offered a cheque of Rs 1 lakh in the name of one Dinesh Yadav as he had no bank accounts. After the cheque of PNB (Six Mile Khanapara, Guwahati) bearing number 523152 of 9.5.2021 issued by Ariful Hussain with A/C No 4652000100022714 got bounced, Singh attempted to contact Pompy who remained traceless since then but her cell phone number connected to Seema Choudhury, a neighbour of Singh in Tinsukia. Intriguingly, Seema Choudhury told media persons that she had donated a kidney to her nephew. Singh, however, has not filed any police complaint as yet.
