Mumbai : Health committee Chairman Geeta Gawli said that she will write to BMC commissioner Sitaram Kunte to provide shrouds for dead bodies of patients in BMC hospitals. She was reacting to a news report which was published in FPJ on Monday. She further said that she will move a proposal for the shrouds in the standing committee.

The BMC may be the richest civic body in India with its budget exceeding that of several small states but its hospitals do not provide shrouds for the dead.
