A heart wrenching story came from Chhattisgarh’s Bastar where a woman had to donate her son’s body to Jagdalpur Medical College as she had no money to cremate the body.
She cried and said that no family member was willing to help her and that since she was very poor she could not afford to take the body to the cremation site.
“We are very poor and will not be able to do anything by taking a dead body. A person at hospital suggested us to donate the body,” she told ANI.
The medical college official asked the woman to donate the body to the college if they wanted for study purposes.
The son of the woman Baaman was hit but a vehicle on February 12 and could not be saved at the hospital.
