Bhubaneswar, August 12 An incident that shames humanity has come to light from the Kalahandi district of Odisha. In fact, some people had to cross a canal to perform the last rites of their relatives in Behraguda village of Golmunda block of the district. The surprising thing is that they got into the water and crossed this canal, because there was no bridge or any other way, by which they could go to the cremation ground.
Water filled the drain due to rain
It should be said that Odisha has been receiving heavy rain for the past several days. This drain of Behraguda village was washed away due to rain. The dirty water of the drain came on the road and disrupted the movement of people. In such a situation, a person named Santa Rana died in that area. The relatives of Santa Rana had to cross this dirty water drain to take the dead body to the crematorium.
The pictures will be disturbing
Pictures of this incident are going viral on social media. It can be seen in the pictures that 4-6 people are carrying the dead body on their shoulders and passing through the water up to their chest. According to India Today’s report, Santa Rana’s relatives said that due to rain, the drain had reached the road. This kind of water often overflows here, but the government has not built any bridges.
Relatives took the body to the crematorium during the rain
Let us tell that Santa Rana died on Tuesday. He was suffering from paralysis for a long time. It was necessary to go to the cremation ground to cremate the dead body and the cremation ground was across the canal. As there was no bridge over the canal, the family members had to cross the canal and go to the crematorium. Meanwhile, it was raining but the family tried to avoid the rain by making a canopy of banana leaves. The video of this incident has also gone viral on social media.
