Kolkata Police arranges 4 green corridors in 1 day

Kolkata: Despite it being a weekday, Kolkata Police has successfully arranged four green corridors in a row on Tuesday to transfer organs to SSKM Hospital from a private hospital and to help a patient, who was shifted to a private hospital in Mumbai, reach the airport. According to senior Kolkata Police officials, this is the first time Kolkata Police has arranged four green corridors in a day.

According to sources, the first green corridor started at 12:08 pm on Tuesday. A person identified as Amit Daga was admitted at a private hospital near Ruby Crossing a few days ago with severe burn injuries. As his condition deteriorated, his family decided to shift him to a private hospital in Mumbai. As soon as the admission was confirmed from the Mumbai hospital, Daga's family requested police for a green corridor. After making necessary arrangements, a Kolkata Police pilot car started in front of an ambulance from the said hospital at 12:08 pm.

During the movement along EM Bypass, traffic was halted other than the ambulance route. At 12:18, the ambulance reached VIP Road from where Bidhannagar Police took up the charge of piloting and the ambulance reached the airport in four minutes.

On the other hand, another patient identified as Apratim Ghosh was admitted at a private hospital near Mukundapur from November 3. He was declared brain-dead on Tuesday. Immediately after the declaration, his family members appealed for organ donation and the process was completed quickly by Swasthya Bhavan.

At 1:17 pm, the first green corridor started with the heart and following that another green corridor was initiated at 1:50 pm with the liver.

The last green corridor was started at 2:25 pm with the kidneys, which reached SSKM at 2:34 pm.
