Doctors offer to amputate beggars' legs

(Filed: 02/08/2006)

Three doctors are being investigated by Indian medical authorities for offering to amputate beggars' healthy limbs so that they attract more money.
They were secretly filmed by the news channel CNN-IBN apparently offering to remove a leg for £120 and were said to be colluding with the crime gangs that control begging in cities.
One doctor, from a government hospital in Delhi, offered to induce gangrene by restricting the flow of blood so that amputation became vital.
After the broadcast an angry crowd gathered outside the doctors' homes demanding their arrest but they had already disappeared.
