A big human organ trafficking racket that persuaded villagers in debt to sell their kidneys has been busted in Assam. Three people have been arrested, the police said, in the case linked to Assam's Dharamtul village where at least a dozen villagers have sold their kidneys to organ traffickers. Poverty, micro-finance loan debts and the promise of easy money have pushed villagers to sell their kidneys. The incidents have increased in the last one year when villagers struggled for income amid the lockdown necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
