The motor mechanic, along with his group consisting of a surgeon doctor, a technician, and others, had reportedly conducted a minimum of 25 surgeries, as per police sources.

The surgeon doctor, who had conducted an additional 300 surgeries, managed to escape.

The suspects are facing charges under sections 224 (Resistance or obstruction by a person to his lawful apprehension), 225 (Resistance or obstruction to lawful apprehension of another person), 353 (Assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), and 186 (Obstructing public servant in discharge of his public functions) of the Pakistan penal code.

The surgeon doctor, who eluded capture with the assistance of four armed individuals, had been dismissed from his government position in 2017 due to his involvement in illegal practices.

The gang received substantial sums of money from foreign nationals in exchange for organ transplants. They utilized the rental properties in various areas of Punjab for these procedures.

The fugitive surgeon, Fawad Mumtaz, had conducted kidney transplants for numerous individuals from China and Saudi Arabia.

Sources also claimed that Mumtaz had performed a kidney transplant for the daughter of a renowned comedian. He has actively participated in this illegal business since 2006.
