The entire stretch was covered in just 15 minutes from 11.27 am to 11.42 am on Saturday morning, thanks to the police’s response that helped save precious time.

The effort is indeed praiseworthy, and it happened at a time when traffic police had been engaged in diversions for Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu’s visit.
The Hyderabad Traffic Police still did everything in their power to execute the green channel and cover the distance of nearly 12 km in a span of 15 minutes, saving a lot of time while transporting the lungs. Otherwise, it takes nearly 45 minutes to cover the distance when there is heavy traffic.
This effort is the eighth time in the last 50 days that the traffic police provided a green channel for a live organ transplant.
