Indore: Days after the inhumane treatment with the dead bodies in the mortuary of Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital, another such case has come to fore in District Hospital on Friday where two bodies were left unattended for four days.
The incident came to light when local residents lodged complaints about a foul smell in the area.
Dead body of an unidentified man was kept in the mortuary, outside the freezer, for the last four days. The body was left by the police as the man had met with an accident in Simrol and police have been trying to identify the same. Similarly, the body of an unidentified woman found in the Aerodrome police station area was also kept outside the freezer for two days.
After lodging the complaint with doctors, people found that the freezers of the hospital were out of order for a long time. “Yes, freezers are out of order. As the hospital has been demolished for reconstruction, we don’t get many bodies for post mortem,” mortuary in-charge Dr Bharat Vajpai told the media.
He didn’t reply to question asking since when the freezers were out of order. However, sources claimed that the freezers were out of order for the last two years but no complaint was lodged by the in-charge.
