SC seeks Center dead bodies in disaster situations.  Took cognizance of deaths in pandemic, Center will have to reply within three weeks

On September 22, the Supreme Court asked the Central Government how it handles dead bodies in the event of a disaster. In fact, during the Corona epidemic, many reports had revealed that dead bodies were being stored poorly in hospital mortuaries and crematoriums. Then the court took suo motu cognizance of the case and started hearing.

The court had named the case The Proper Treatment of Covid-19 Patients and Dignified Handling of Dead Bodies in Hospitals (Proper Treatment of Covid Patients and Proper Handling of Dead Bodies in Hospitals).

A few days after the hearing of the case started, a person filed a petition in the court. He claimed- During Corona, neither did I see my mother’s face nor performed her last rites. Whereas the truth is that he did not die of Covid-19.

The court also included his petition in the same case. The bench of CJI DY Chandrachud, Justice JB Pardiwala and Justice Manoj Mishra, while hearing the case, has sought a reply from the Center within three weeks.

The bench said that the government should file an affidavit and tell us what is the procedure for handling dead bodies during disaster and non-disaster periods? This issue will now be heard in November.

Hospital accused of changing woman’s body
During the hearing, the intervener’s lawyer told the court that my client’s mother was changed and the hospital gave her someone else’s body. The bench asked the intervener’s counsel to present a short note of two-three pages on the issue raised by him, so that we can send it to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
