A kidney transplant ring has been busted in India. Hundreds of poor people were forced into having their kidneys removed. ABC News
reports that victims were promised a job, then taken to a private house and forced at gunpoint to sell their kidneys.
One victim's story sounds just like the kidney-transplant urban legend
"I was approached by a stranger for a job. When I accepted, I was taken to a room with gunmen," Mohammed Salim told India's local NDTV television channel. "They tested my blood, gave me an injection and I lost consciousness. When I woke up, I had pain in my lower abdomen and I was told that my kidney had been removed."
The kidney transplant ring was found out when suspicious neighbors "noticed blood running out of the house's gutters." Yeah, that would kind of be a giveaway. (Thanks, Stephen)
