Compensation Demanded For Bengal's Blood Scam Victims

to detect contaminated blood," said Saha, who is working on HIV/AIDS vaccine in USA.

"As the largest humanitarian society (PBT) dedicated to protect patients' interests, we seek for an immediate disclosure of the investigation done by the health department to uncover the truth in this scandal," he said. Saha formed the PBT in course of fighting a legal battle against the medical fraternity after his wife died of alleged medical negligence in India during a visit in 1998 from USA.

"We demand that a search should be undertaken immediately to identify all victims of this 'kit' scandal, many of whom are still unaware about their impending danger, by inserting advertisements in popular media," he said.

Ghyansham Sarda, one of the prime accused in the expired blood test kit scam, was Thursday arrested by the detective department officers. Sarda and his brother Govind Sarda, who owns Monozyme India, were arrested in the scam.

All hospitals and blood banks in West Bengal were earlier alerted against using expired blood test kits supplied by Monozyme India.

Health workers fear that thousands of people in West Bengal, who were given blood transfusions might have received infected blood because the expired and faulty kits would have failed to detect any contamination. The expiry dates on the kits had reportedly been tampered with.

Monozyme India is said to have bagged the contract by quoting Rs.20 a kit against the Rs.60-70 quoted by rivals. The company had supplied tens of thousands of kits meant for detecting infections 'such as HIV, Hepatitis B or C' in collected blood.

Till August 2006, it had supplied the government over 140,000 kits for testing Hepatitis B and C alone, health officials said.
