A successful liver transplant operation has been carried out on Roushan, a seven-month-old baby girl, at the state-run SSKM hospital in Kolkata, on Friday.
According to reports, this was the first time that a transplant operation was performed in the eastern part of the country.
The infant's father Rajab Ali, a mason from Burdwan district, donated a portion of his liver to save the baby.
The hospital functionaries said that the baby was suffering a serious liver problem from the very first day of her life.
Liver transplantation was the only way through her life could be saved.
