Rasi­l­aben Kataria, a res­i­dent of Bhav­na­gar in Gujarat, un­der­went a kid­ney trans­plant at LH Hi­ranan­dani Hospi­tal, Powai, in April.

While the doc­u­ments with the hospi­tal show her sis­ter, Har­shaben Ke­va­dia, as the donor, the ac­tual donor, ac­cord­ing to the direc­torate of health ser­vices (DHS), is the wife of Yusuf Shah Di­wan, one of the ac­cused in the kid­ney trans­plant case in­volv­ing Bri­jk­ishore Jaiswal, which un­earthed the kid­ney racket in the hospi­tal.

Ac­cord­ing to the doc­u­ments sub­mit­ted to the DHS, ac­cessed by HT, have re­vealed that Ke­va­dia had given a blood sam­ple and signed on the donor’s form, but the pho­to­graph pasted on the trans­plant doc­u­ments was that of an uniden­ti­fied wo­man who was pre­sented as Kataria’s bi­o­log­i­cal sis­ter.

“I did not do­nate my kid­ney to my sis­ter. I gave my blood sam­ples at a Charni Road-based hospi­tal for her trans­plant surgery,” Ke­va­dia told HT.

The DHS are in­ves­ti­gat­ing four trans­plant cases, in­clud­ing Kataria’s.
