Bihar elderly couple beg on roads to arrange bribe to hospital for son's body

After public outcry, the hospital authorities have said that strict action will be taken in the matter. 

A purported video of an elderly couple in Samastipur district, Bihar, going door to door, begging to collect Rs 50,000 to get their dead son’s body released from the hospital, is going viral.

The couple comes from an economically disadvantageous background and since they don't have the money the hospital employee has allegedly asked for, they have been knocking on doors to beg for the money.

"Some time ago, my son had gone missing. Now, we have received a call that my son's body is at Sadar Hospital, Samastipur. A hospital employee has asked for Rs 50,000 to release my son's body. We're poor people, how can we pay this amount?" Mahesh Thakur, the deceased's father, told ANI.
