In another case of medical negligence, a man had to carry his deceased mother’s body to the nearby hospital for a postmortem, on a bike, in Madhya Pradesh’s Tikamgarh.
His mother, Kunwarbai Banshkar, who was a resident of Manstapur village, died after being bit by a snake. Her son and relatives had to take her to nearby hospital but the hospital failed to send a hearse van. After waiting for long enough, they decided to take her body to the hospital on a bike.
Several incidents of similar nature have been reported in the recent past. In Odisha, a man was forced to carry his dead wife on his back. In another incident, a man had to carry the body of his seven-month-old niece on his bicycle in Kaushambi, Uttar Pradesh.
In Assam, a man had to cross a makeshift bamboo bridge and carry his brother’s body to a civil hospital due to the absence of a motorable road link.
