The patient was declared brain dead on August 13 after which doctors spoke to his family members and convinced them to donate the organs.

According to the doctors, the two kidneys and the liver were transplanted to three needy patients in the hospital.

"Our efforts have always been to increase the number of organ donations as much as possible. I am proud that AIIMS has been involved in such a noble cause. We are trying to make more and more people aware about organ donation," said AIIMS director M.C. Misra said.
