Kerala: The preserved bodies of Kozhikode Medical College used for practical studies by students, will finally find their resting place, when the authorities bury them with prior police clearance. The postponement of their burial was a result of the delay in getting police consent due to certain technical and legal issues.
It was following complaints on the cadavers not having been buried that the Health and Education Directorate gave directions to hospital authorities to do the needful.
“The major reason for not burying the bodies was due to the delay in clearance from the police for burial as they had to have a detailed inquiry on the dead body”, said Medical College Principal, Dr V.R. Rajendran.
Medical Education Director, Dr Ramlla Beevi ordered that cadavers be buried soon after the clearance certificate was received. ‘Without court permission, the hospital will have no right to bury the bodies, hence they will have to seek the permission,” she added to the Deccan Chronicle.
