 The situation in Corona in India is deteriorating and the official report released on Wednesday said that so far the highest number of deaths has been recorded in a single day.

 According to the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, more than 17,000 new cases have come to light in the last 24 hours, with more than 500 people killed.

 As the death toll from the epidemic rises, many tragic and inhumane incidents are being reported from across the country.

 A similar case has recently occurred in the southern Indian state of Karnataka.

An incident took place in Bellary district of Karnataka which drew a strong reaction on social media.  The disposal of the bodies of eight people who died of cod in the Bellary area of ​​Karnataka has revived the debate over the desecration of corpses.

 The Karnataka government has banned the participating field team after the video of the body being dumped in a pit went viral and the government has also apologized to the families of the victims.

 Congress leader DK ShivaKumar posted the video on which the government staff moved quickly. Deputy Commissioner War District Magistrate SS Nicole said in a statement that an examination of the video revealed that the incident took place in Bellary, where eight people were killed by covid-19.


After the video went viral, the Additional Deputy Commissioner was asked to verify the video immediately. In the video, JCB is seen standing behind the people holding the corpses wearing PPE kits, from which pits are being dug.

 A good amount of disinfectant has been put in each pit and the body disposal team is putting the bodies in it. In the same way, they put the bodies in the pit one by one.

 "We have issued an unconditional apology to the families of the victims," ​​said SS Nicole.  The bodies belonged to eight people who died at the Vijayanagar Institute of Medical Sciences.

According to the research of district officials, SOPs have been followed for burial of bodies.

 "They followed all the protocols," said SS Nakula.  But on the level of humanity, they have been forgotten.  The bodies should have been more sensitive in burial.

 Currently, they have removed the 'entire outsourced team' and now a new team will work for the hospital's forensic department.

 "I have nothing more to say but to apologize to the families of the victims and the people of Bilari," the deputy commissioner said.
