Truth

The same exact message was viral more than a year ago too. The below tweet is of 12th Oct 2017

Aug 2018 – This was wrong too.

The Mobile Number belongs to a Nephrologist in Meerut, Dr. Sandeep Garg.

SMHoaxSlayer contacted him and following is what he narrated –

He had this issue since September 2017, he tried filing a Police complain but on their suggestion filed a complain to the cyber cell.

He doesn’t want to disconnect this number as he has been has this number since last 13 years and almost all of his patients has the same number.

He believe someone gave out his number in such a way as a prank or to harass him.

Further, Sharing/forwarding such message i.e. Organ Donation is illegal/crime as per Human Organ Transplant Act-1994.

One similar case happened in Karnataka in which Times of India reported
