No Ambulance, Family Carries Body On Motorcycle

Puri: It seems Dana Majhi of Kalahandi, who walked for 10 kilometres with his wife’s corpse on his shoulder, has set an altogether different trend of carrying body if denied a hearse. In one such incident, a family carried dead body on motorcycle allegedly due to non-availability of Mahaprayan hearse vehicle in Puri district. The video of the incident has now gone viral on social media.

As per reports, one Akura Jena of Udayapur village died while undergoing treatment at Delanga hospital. Though his family members asked for an ambulance, the hospital authorities refused them citing that Mahaprayan vehicle was unavailable.

With no option, they tried to hire a private ambulance but decided to carry the body on motorcycle as the ambulance reportedly demanded extra charges.

Though the authenticity of the video is yet to be ascertained, medical authorities couldn’t be contacted on such allegations. The story will be updated after necessary statements from concerned authorities.
