The social media posts and a series of screenshots produced by TOI, about Devender Sharma, an Ayurvedic practitioner-turned-organ harvester-cum-serial killer, shared with captions claiming that he fabricated false COVID-19 positive reports for patients, who were apparently without the disease in order to get them admitted for kidney harvesting, are false.
Another article about the doctor in Hindi was also shared. Check out here.
Therefore, to verify the news is true or not, the Insydfeed crew was approached to claim it.

Devender Sharma, an Ayurvedic practitioner forged patients and gave false COVID-19 positive reports to them, so as to get them admitted and steal their kidneys.
The claim about the Ayurvedic Doctor Sharma turned out to be False.
Since Devender Sharma has been in jail for over 16 years and thus the charges about him turned out to be false, a close source reported.
Check out the infographic time-line of the events about the Ayurvedic doctor Sharma.
Devender Sharma holds a Bachelor’s degree in Ayurveda, Medicine, and Surgery (BAMS), and was running a clinic for over 11 years. After serving as a doctor, 12 years later in 1994, He invested his money on fake gas agency and also got involved in robbery through which he made his income. After a year of stealing gas cylinders, he was arrested. He has cases filed against him in Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh.
During the years 1994 and 2004, he confessed his crime of harvesting kidneys from innocent patients for over 10years.
Update on Sharma:
However, now it’s clear that the claim on Sharma for forging patients of COVID-19 for harvesting kidneys is unreasonable since he’s currently under the custody of Delhi Police led by DCP Rakesh Paweria. The DCP also added that the entire kidney racket happened decades ago.
An article also stated that Sharma was let out on parole on January 28, 2020, for good behavior, after which he jumped parole and absconded for 6 more months before being nabbed again on July 28, 2020.
Further, the DCP also confirmed that there’s no case or new murder involving him since he left the parole and the article makes no mention of any fresh murders and crimes by Sharma this year, nor does it link him with COVID-19 in any way.
