Jammu, Feb 15 (IANS) The kidney transplant racket’s Jammu connections were being probed Friday with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raiding the premises of alleged kingpin Amit Kumar’s father-in-law. Sham Lal Saini’s home in the slum area of Digiana on the outskirts of this Jammu and Kashmir winter capital was raided and he was questioned about Amit Kumar’s visits to the city, police sources said.

Saini’s daughter Poonam had joined Amit Kumar as a receptionist at his clinic in 1995 and later married him. She and her two sons had been living in an affluent Toronto suburb.

Amit Kumar, who is alleged to be behind 600 illegal kidney transplants, was arrested last week from Nepal and is currently in CBI custody.
