Donor’s elder brother Virupaksha, younger brother Siddesh have given written confirmation for the same a while back, while his cousin brother Srikanth N. S was the witness. We have also informed Dr. Satish who is the HOD of forensic medicine Victoria hospital for post mortem. His team would be coming to perform the PM to Apollo hospital towards the end of the retrieval process,” Lijamol Joseph, chief transplant coordinator of Jeevasarthakathe/SOTTO was quoted speaking to Bangalore Times.
