A green corridor was created from Aurangabad to Pune for transporting a liver to Sahy-adri Hospital at around 10.40 am in about 3.5 hours (normally it takes 6 hours). This was due to the combined efforts of Pune and Aurangabad police. The liver of a 33-year-old man who was declared brain dead at Auranga-bad was transported to Pune and successfully transplanted in a 55-year-old suffering from chronic liver diseases.
