Toronto, March 11 (IANS) The Brampton house of Amit Kumar, the alleged mastermind of the multi-million-rupee kidney racket ring, which was put on sale online, has been taken off from the list for unknown reasons. The 5,600 sq ft spacious house on Pali Drive in the upscale Indian neighbourhood was listed Thursday for sale at $634,900 on an online real estate portal. March 20 was the deadline for the bids but the listing was suspended Monday.
Kumar had bought the spacious house for $610,000 last year. They had $150,000 in cash and the rest the amount came through mortgage by the Royal Bank of Canada.
It carried a monthly instalment of a little less than $3,000.
Kumar’s wife Poonam and two sons lived in the house when the kidney scam came to light in January.
After staying indoors for several days, Poonam slipped out of the house with her kids Feb 8, a day after Kumar was arrested in a Nepal guesthouse.
She has not been back since then. The young boys have also not gone back to the school nearby.
Poonam’s whereabouts are unknown and her mobile numbers remain suspended.
Kumar was in Brampton till Christmas when he was seen at year-end parties at his friends’ places.
