Lahore: In Bhawalpur district of central Punjab, Police registered a criminal case against a farmer, Who allegedly sold his wife’s kidney to purchase a tractor.

According to reports the doctors discovered the removal of the organ while treating the woman for a urinary tract infection she contracted after the unlawful surgery.

The victim was married three years ago, was operated at a local hospital after developing complications from an earlier miscarriage. The woman also claimed that she lost the child because of an alleged beating by her husband.

Poverty-stricken people in Pakistanis can earn no more than a thaousand US dollars by resorting to such prohabited organ trade. Unfortunately much of the money goes in big pockets of middlemen and doctors.

The trade having no legal justification in the country, transplants cost 5,000 US dollars, which is very cheap as compared to the expenses charged in other countries. However, to keep sharp eye on the unchecked trade of human organs, government is planing to ban the trade and introduce a new mechanism to regulate transplants and heavy fines for violations.
