Indore: Indore becomes the only city in central India to make a record of creating ‘Green Corridors’ for the 21st time, second in consecutive days, for giving new lease of life to several patients. Three more Green Corridors were prepared on Monday for speedy transportation of vital organs of a 21-year-old medical student.

The first corridor was prepared at around 10:30 pm between CHL Hospital and Airport for transporting heart while other corridors were prepared few minutes later from CHL Hospital to Choithram Hospital and to Bombay Hospital for transporting kidneys. Moreover, it was the ninth time when heart of the patient was transported to another state. Student of MBBS- first year in Index Medical College Priyank Gupta, a resident of Damoh, was admitted to CHL Hospital a couple of days ago in critical conditions after meeting with an accident in Khudel police station area.

“Priyank was declared brain dead initially on Sunday noon and later on Sunday night. However, his family members refused to donate the organs but were counseled by the activists of Muskan Group and officials of Indore Organ Donation Society after which they agreed to donate organs on Monday noon,” Jeetu Bagani of Muskan Group said.

“His liver was transplanted to a patient in CHL Hospital while his was airlifted for New Delhi and was transplanted to a patient in Max Hospital. One of the kidneys was transplanted in Choithram Hospital and other in Bombay Hospital,” Indore Organ Donation Society’s officials said. On July 2, organs of 32-year-old Anamika Jain of Mandleshwar were transplanted to three patients in city hospitals.

Sisters motivate Priyank’s father for organ donation

Priyank was survived with parents, one elder and one younger sister. “His father Dwarka Gupta refused to donate his organs. Later, Priyank’s sister Priyanshi and Divyanshi motivated their father for donating organs of their brother for keeping him alive even after death,” Bagani said. It was difficult for the family to take the decision but they agreed on Monday noon.
