JCB used to shift Covid-19 patient’s body to crematorium in Srikakulam dist; Palasa civic chief suspended
The AP government suspended Palasa Municipal Commissioner T Nagendra Kumar and Sanitary Inspector N Rajeev over the incident of using JCB for shifting the coronavirus patient’s body to crematorium in Srikakulam district. According to protocol, the body should be transported in an ambulance. The opposition came down heavily on the ruling YSRCP government for not respecting the dead. In Sompeta too, the civic staff used a tractor to shift the body of a coronavirus patient to cremation ground. The state government ordered the collector to probe into both incidents and submit a report.
