Mahabubnagar police arrested a rice trader, who posed as a kidney doctor online and duped people willing to sell their kidneys. Police arrested Syed Haneef Shanu (44) from Guntakal in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh.

Posing as Dr Anand, Syed Haneef Shanu posted messages on social networking sites promising to pay up to Rs 50 lakh to kidney donors. If anyone contacted the mobile number he provided, Shanu used to ask that person to deposit Rs 10,000 first as a fee in a bank account.

Once the fee was deposited in his account, Shanu would switch off the mobile or stop responding to phone calls from the victims. He is suspected to have cheated several persons in this manner.

On November 24, Gandla Surender, a tractor mechanic, lodged a complaint at Mahabubnagar-I Town police station stating that his 22-year-old son, G Kiran Kumar, was missing. Suspecting the 22-year-old to have fallen prey to a racket, police formed a special team to trace him and held Shanu from his house in Guntakal, and also found Kiran.
