Bhopal: The first green corridor created in capital of Madhya Pardesh on Friday which transported a liver from the airport to a hospital within just 13 minutes.

The Additional Superintendent of Police (Transport) Sameer Yadav said that the 13-km-long green corridor was created between the airport and Red Cross Hospital in the city.

Yadav said, "The liver of Sunil, 42, who was declared brain dead by doctors at a hospital in Indore, was transported to Bhopal on a special charted plane around 0730 hours." He further added, "Around 120 police personnel were on duty to oversee the transportation of the liver through the corridor. It's for the first time that a liver transplantation has taken place in Madhya Pradesh."

The hospital authorities said that Sunil's liver would be transplanted on a woman admitted in a private hospital here.
