A young lady, nearly 22-year-old from Asansol- Surabhi Barat, who was being treated in Apollo Gleneagles hospital in city's Bypass area, was declared brain-dead and her family members decided to donate her kidneys, eyes and liver.

Doctors decided to transplant a kidney and liver for Bijay Kumar Bhut and Reiza Uvalik respectively, who are under treatment in the same hospital, while the eyes of the woman have already been handed over to the Disha Eye Hospital.

However, the hospital authority and the woman's family members requested the administration to arrange a green corridor to send another kidney to government-run SSKM hospital in central Kolkata.

Accepting the challenge on the festive-night, police successfully created a green corridor and it would take only 9 minutes to traffic the kidney from Apollo Gleneagles to SSKM hospital, according to reports. Later it was transplanted to Baruipur's resident Priyotosh Naskar at SSKM hospital.
