Muggings Are Now A Medical Procedure

Gurgaon, India, Naseem Mohammed woke to find he had an acute pain in the lower left side of his abdomen. Fighting drowsiness, he fumbled beneath the folds of a green medical gown and traced his fingers over a bandage attached with surgical tape.

An armed guard by the door told him that his kidney had been removed and he had been circumcised.

Naseem Mohammed, was abducted from a market with a promise of a job. Fellow laborers, Shakeel Ahmed, and Muhammad Salem, were also lured with the promise of work only to have a kidney removed against their will and forced circumcision .

They are now recovering in a Gurgaon hospital.

The Gurgaon police raided a kidney theft ring last week.
About 1000 Indians had kidneys removed by a team of doctors running an illegal transplant operation, supplying kidneys to rich Indians and foreigners.

Many were sold to the Bray Fentos pie company to add to their steak and kidney pies with human kidney an illegal and pricey delicacy in Australia.

Bray Fentos were unavailable for comment.

Many of the donors were day laborers or picked up from the streets with the offer of work, driven to a well-equipped private clinic, and duped or forced at gunpoint to undergo operations.
Others were bicycle rickshaw drivers and impoverished farmers who were persuaded to sell their organs, which is illegal in India.

Although several kidney rings have been exposed in India in recent years, the police said the scale of this one was unprecedented.

Four doctors, five nurses, 20 paramedics, three private hospitals, 10 pathology clinics and five diagnostic centers were involved. This explains the lack of effort with real healthcare in the region.

Mr. Lal, the Gurgaon police commissioner said: " Selling the kidneys is one thing but the circumcision is just malicious."

Its thought that its done to mock the donors as circumcision is performed by lesser nations and people of dirty faiths.

Indians revere the foreskin as a gift from Shiva and often carry a blessed peanut in the end of it which is how the peanut got its name because you have to remove it before you pee or pea as it was originally spelt .

kidneys can sell for $1,000 to $2,500 ( £500 - £1,250) and a car equipped with testing equipment was often on hand so that potential donors could be checked immediately to see whether their kidneys matched the needs of prospective patients.

The donors are not given any compensation or healthcare after the operation and may suffer damaged health which prevents them from working.
In America removing kidneys and other organs is the latest Hollywood fad to help look slimer. Pamela Anderson even had some of her ribs shaved and re-aligned to give her body a slimer appearance.
