By Our Staff Reporter

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, MARCH 15. The City Corporation will conduct an inquiry into the incident in which unclaimed bodies were taken out from Medical College Hospital's (MCH) mortuary by the Corporation staff in an open truck and left lying outside, said M. Sujanapal, the Deputy Mayor, who is holding the charge of the Mayor and K. C. Vikraman, the chairman of the standing committee on health and education.

Action will be taken against those responsible for the incident, they said in a statement here.

The matter was noted by the State Human Rights Commission member, S. Verghese, while he was on a visit to the MCH on Monday.

The Corporation will henceforth bear the expenses for cremating all unclaimed bodies at the electric crematorium in Thycaud.

Directions have been issued to the section concerned to give the civic body's ambulance free of cost for transporting unclaimed bodies, the statement said.
