The news was a setback for Fr Ebi Porathur, her sibling and a member of the Palakkad diocese. He did not think much and decided to donate his kidney to his sister.
The latest experimental procedure is part of a growing field of research aimed at advancing cross-species transplants, testing the technique on bodies that have been donated for science.
Determined to make a difference, Fr. George obtained the necessary permissions from the Thalassery Diocese and approached Jojomon's family to extend the lifeline.
During the investigation, the Bhavanipuram police learnt that Kata Karthik played a crucial role in applying fake Family Member Certificates and No Objection Certificates on behalf of donors.
Police suspect the accused duo might have performed more kidney transplants and special teams have been formed to probe the matter.
Based on a complaint lodged by West Zone tahsildar K Lakshmi, Bhavanipuram police registered a case under relevant sections of IPC and took two persons into their custody.
The court said, it cannot be like an all-encompassing system trying to do everything. It said these are administrative issues for the police and the executive mechanism to deal with.
