white-coat-436x300_tcJalandhar, Sep 1- Dr Rajesh Aggarwal, owner of National Kidney Hospital, and his wife Deepa Aggarwal, running Sunder Labs, have been nominated in the infamous kidney scam and the Special Investigation Team (SIT) today interrogated the doctor couple in the scam involving at least seven cases of illegal and unauthorised kidney transplantation. ADCP Alka Meena today called the doctor couple for investigations at Police Station division no 7. Media persons gathered at the gate of the police station to wait for any outcome of the investigations. There was no word from the police side till 1930 hrs. When insisted, the ADCP said both Doctor Rajesh Aggarwal and his wife Deepa Aggarwal had been nominated in the case. After the doctor couple is nominated in the case, their arrest is expected any moment, police sources said. The police from its side had cleared the clouds of suspicion that the doctor and his wife had been given clean chit. The Directorate of Punjab Medical Education and Research had sent a detailed report with regard to the medical lapses committed by Dr Rajesh Aggarwal on the basis of which the doctor couple was summoned to Police Station. Neena Rani aka Sadhna, transplant coordinator of the National Kidney Hospital owned by Dr Rajesh Aggarwal, had thrown a letter bomb on the doctor while talking to the media during her court appearance last week that doctor was fully responsible for the transplantation of kidneys. She had even alleged that the doctor had lured her of a handsome amount of Rs three lakh and an FD for keeping her mouth shut before the police and during the court proceedings as well. She had also distributed a letter written by her to the media accusing and holding the doctor responsible solely for the scam.
