SALE OF KIDNEYS TO FOREIGN PATIENTS



123. N.N. KRISHNADAS, SUNIL KHAN

Sir,the kidney sale racketeering is a very serious social issue today in our country.Every day such incidents are reported from several parts of our country . In the reply of the hon. Minister it has been mentioned that there is no such specific complaint or details that have been received by the Ministry. But I can say that there is a very serious petition before the hon. High Court of Kerala regarding kidney sale and purchase, which has been banned in our country. The hon. High Court of Kerala has asked the Government of Kerala to submit their affidavit in this regard. This is only an example that I am giving. Actually, in several parts of our country such incidents are coming up. In spite of it, unfortunately it has been mentioned in the reply of the hon. Minister that no such specific complaint has so far been received by them. I would like to know from the hon. Minister as to what is the action proposed to be taken to check the sale and purchase of these precious human organs.
