Saturday, June 4, 2016

The police approached the hospital a few days back for their investigation in the matter pertaining to an alleged kidney sale racket. We are co-operating and providing to them all information required to help them in their investigation. This matter is of grave concern and our teams are extending all support to the Police.

The hospital, in order to ensure compliance with the law and diligence in process has an independent body with external members also for according consent for any transplant surgery. This Committee goes through all documents necessary to ensure that requirements under the Act are complied with. Further, the hospital has ensured that all due process as per the law has been followed.

The police in their investigation have identified certain individuals, who are not employees of the hospital, who have been alleged to be involved in the racket. While all due precautions were taken, it appears fake and forged documents were used for this racket with a criminal intent. The hospital has been a victim of a well-orchestrated operation to cheat patients and the hospital. We urge the police to take the strictest of action against all those involved.

We would like reassure that Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals has always abided by the law with utmost care and diligence and shall continue to do so.
