HYDERABAD: The traffic police facilitated the transport of live organs (lungs) by providing a green channel to the ambulance within the city limits on Saturday.
To facilitate the non-stop movement of the live organs, the Hyderabad traffic cops ensured that the entire 11.7 km stretch between Yashoda Hospital in Malakpet to Yashoda Hospital in Secunderabad, which usually takes about 45 minutes was covered within 15 minutes.
Anil Kumar, additional commissioner of police, traffic, Hyderabad said, “As it is a live organ, it is necessary to shift it as soon as possible. Immediately I spoke to my field officers to arrange the Green Channel and ensured that the distance was covered within a short span without any hassle.”
The medical team carrying live organs left at 11.27 am from Yashoda Hospital, Malakpet and reached Yashoda Hospital, Secunderabad at 11.42 am. The Hyderabad Traffic Police received eight requests for a Green Channel this year.
