A police officer said they have provided eight green corridors so far this year and 24 such passages last year

The Delhi Traffic Police facilitated a 16-kilometre green corridor for the transportation of a liver from Chandigarh to a hospital in Dwarka, officials confirmed on Wednesday.

The organ, arriving at the IGI airport from Chandigarh around 1.30 pm on Tuesday, reached Aakash Healthcare Super Speciality Hospital in Dwarka within 18 minutes via the designated corridor, stated a senior police officer.

Thirty-five traffic personnel were deployed to ensure the smooth and swift movement of the ambulance carrying the organ through the green corridor, the officer added.

In consideration of the organ’s delicate nature, weighing approximately 15 kg and requiring careful handling, the hospital requested that it be transported in a sealed box, with precautions taken to avoid exposure to X-rays, as per police reports.

The police officer further disclosed that they have facilitated eight green corridors this year and 24 such passages last year. (With inputs from PTI)
