” A Birmingham schoolgirl was murdered by health workers in India in a failed attempt to harvest her organs, her devastated parents have sensationally claimed.
Gurkiren Kaur Loyal’s family said she was being treated for a simple case of dehydration when staff at a clinic gave her a mystery injection which took her life.
… They said they only discovered her organs had been taken when her body was flown home to the UK.
Only her eyes remained, they said.
People with money pay to help their family members,” she said.
“We are trying to build a portfolio of other cases.”
Worse still, Amrit said she was told a post-mortem examination would be required in India before her daughter’s body could be returned to the UK.
“They said they would use a hammer and chisel to open her,” she said. “I demanded a more dignified, discreet examination.”
Eventually, having kept watch over Gurkiren’s body to prevent evidence being destroyed, they were given assurances that a respectful autopsy would be carried out.
But, returning to the mortuary, Amrit said they found her daughter’s bloodstained and ripped clothes by an incinerator and that the post-mortem examination had been carried out by a non-qualified junior.
“It was medieval,” she said.
After chasing up death certificates, they had Gurkiren’s body flown home and a UK post-mortem examination was ordered.
But Amrit said their hopes of finding out what was given to their daughter were shattered in a call from Birmingham coroner Aidan Cotter.
“He said it was impossible to come to a conclusion for the cause of death,” she said.
“They had nothing to work from, she had no organs in her body for them to take samples.
In 2007, Ravindranath Seppan, of the Chennai Doctors’ Association for Social Equality, admitted: “India’s rich are turning to India’s poor to live longer.”
He said the commercial trade of human organs remained big business, despite having been banned in 1994.
