INDIA:A tribal man in Odisha’s Kalahandi district carried the body of his wife on shoulders as the hospital authorities of Bhawanipatna denied an ambulance for him. Manji along with his 12-year-old daughter carried his wife Amang Devi’s body on his shoulders nearly 12 km to his home. The 42-year-old woman who was suffering from tuberculosis died early on Wednesday morning.

Though Manji explained his helplessness, he did not get any help from the hospital authorities. Thus he wrapped his wife’s body in some old sheets from hospital and started walking to his village. The shocking incident occurred in a state where the Naveen Patnaik government launched the ‘Mahaparayana scheme’, offering free transportation of bodies from government hospitals to the residence of the deceased.

The incident came into light after some reporters spotted him carrying the body and alerted the officials. Later the District Collector arranged an ambulance for them. When asked about the incident, the Collector made it clear that the family will be provided with an assistance under the ‘Harichandra Yojana’ and the Red Cross Fund.
