Karnataka: Covid victims' bodies dumped in a mass grave

Jul 01, 2020 07:34 IST

In a disturbing video that emerged on Tuesday, eight bodies of coronavirus victims were wrapped in plastic and dumped into a common pit in Karnataka's Ballari district. Officials, while maintaining that bodies were wrapped in plastic as per rules, said that the inhumane treatment will be probed. CM BS Yeddiurappa termed the behaviour of the staff "inhuman and painful". According to news agency ANI, the entire field team involved in "the disrespectful handling of the bodies" had been disbanded and the district administration has apologised to the families.
