Bhopal: What can be more horrific than to see a parent forced to carry his/her son’s/daughter’s body on a cot to the hospital for post mortem? Well, here is a heart-wrenching story from Madhya Pradesh where a man was forced to carry his daughter’s body on a cot for post-mortem for 35 km, walking for almost seven hours to reach the hospital in Singrauli district of MP.
A video surfaced online which showed the man, along with a few villagers, mounting his 16 year old daughter’s body on a cot and making his way through the village on foot.
The teen had died by suicide on May 5 after which the police reached their house in Gadai village and ordered the family to bring the body for an autopsy, some 35 km away.
Due to financial constraints, the family was unable to hire a vehicle on their own and was denied any mode of transportation by the authorities.
The girl’s father, Dhirapati Singh Gond, and some villagers then left on foot in the morning and reached the hospital after seven hours.
