The Colombo Crimes Division informed Court on Friday that the reports by the judicial medical officers confirm that of the eight Indian nationals who were recently arrested over a kidney scam, six  kidneys belonging to six of the suspects, had been removed.

These facts were revealed when the case was taken up before the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court on Friday morning.

It was further revealed, upon questioning the suspects, that one kidney had been sold for Indian Rs.500,000, and that the suspects were yet to receive the promised amounts.
