NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Three Indian doctors caught on camera apparently agreeing to amputate the healthy limbs of beggars are to be questioned by the Indian Medical Council, an official said Tuesday. Secretly filmed footage taken by the CNN-IBN news channel and broadcast Saturday showed one of the doctors asking for 10,000 rupees (about $215) to amputate a lower leg, leaving a stump that may draw sympathy — and a few rupees — from passersby. He then suggests chopping off three fingers from the man’s left hand.
“Believe me if there are two beggars in front of you and one of them is lame, you will give the money to the lame beggar,” the station recorded him as saying in Hindi.
I think I know who the lame one is here.
