A 1992-batch Uttar Pradesh-cadre IPS officer, Amitabh Thakur, who is posted as has presented an application to police station Gomti Nagar, Lucknow for registration of FIR in an alleged Kidney racket.

For this he will have to come to Pune and from there to Iran, the entire arrangement being made at that person's end. That person asked Thakur about his age and passport and told him that the money will be given in advance.
