On Monday, a team conducted a raid at the passport office on the directions of FIA Punjab Zone-I Deputy Director Sardar Mavarhan Khan on receiving information that an international gang was active in Lahore in illegal transplant of human organs.

###

According to local media reports, FIA arrested seven suspects, including donors and agents.

###

The gang members allegedly motivated underprivileged people to sell their organs like livers and kidneys, and then had the organ transplant conducted in China.

Khan told a local news outlet that initial investigations revealed that the agents had contacts in China where they managed to get the organ transplant conducted by Chinese doctors.

“This is the first time that such a gang has been unearthed, which was involved in illegal human organ transplants in China. An agent pays around Rs400,000 (Dh 8,820) to a donor and arranges his travel to the country. A recipient usually reaches there (China) on his own,” Khan was quoted as saying.
