Woman gets husband's body after 8 months

Burdwan (West Bengal): A woman was on Monday handed over the body of her husband eight months after he died in the train accident at Sainthia in Birbhum district of West Bengal in which 66 people were killed, reports PTI quoting Government Railway Police (GRP) sources here.

Bhola Shah (56), a businessman and resident of Arrah district of Bihar, was travelling in the Vananchal Express from Bhagalpur to Ranchi when the Uttar Banga Express rammed into it at Sainthia railway station on July 19, 2010. Sixty-six people were killed and over 100 injured.

After hearing the news of the accident, Shah's wife Gangajali Devi went to Sainthia and identified her husband's body but the GRP authorities refused to hand it over for lack of evidence.

She then filed a case in a court demanding her husband's body.

On March 24, the court of the Additional Sessions Judge ordered the GRP to hand over Shah's body to Gangajali Devi. After receiving the court's order, the GRP on Monday went to the morgue of the Burdwan Medical College Hospital and handed over the body of Shah to Gangajali Devi, the GRP sources added. - PTI
