The parents of Gurkiren Loyal, an 8 year old British schoolgirl that died in a hospital in India whilst on a family holiday, alleged that their daughter was murdered by the hospital for her organs.
Gurkiren was taken into a local clinic for treatment of mild dehydration after complaining of a sore tummy. Her heart broken parents allege that the little girl was receiving a drip when a staff member came up to her with an injection. The parents asked what the injection was for but they were ignored and within minuted their daughter was dead. As if this wasn’t shocking enough, the parent were informed that a postmortem must be carried out before the body would be released during which time they removed all Gurkiren’s organs except her eyes. The parents only discovered this upon the British coroner’s revelation.
The doctor that owns the clinic has since fled and is not returning calls. I didn’t know that India had a growing black market for organs but this story is as tragic as it is sick. Justice for this family and for Gurkiren is a long way away but I truly hope the pressure from British MPs helps.
