“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive” – Dalai Lama
New Delhi, Sept 14, 2016: Indeed humanity has failed to survive yet again in Capital State, Delhi. 37-year-old Chhote Lal who runs a tea shop had to roam around in the streets of Delhi in an ambulance for four hours with his wife’s dead body before the cremation. Not just that, even the landlord allegedly did not allow to keep it at his rented accommodation in Karkardooma village in east Delhi.
Not just that, even the landlord allegedly did not allow to keep it at his rented accommodation in Karkardooma village in east Delhi. Chhote Lal had admitted his 35-year-old wife, Anju in Hedgewar Hospital, 2-3 days back when she was complaining of high fever, mentioned the PTI reports.

She took her last breath yesterday in a hospital. The police suspect this to be a case of ‘chikungunya’. Later that night, when grieving husband took his wife’s body to his rented house which is in Karkardooma, his landlord too, has refused to keep the body in the house. Finding no way out of this situation, he then decided to keep the body in the lane where his home is situated, but the neighbours had objected to that as well.
Having lost all hopes, he took the body back to the hospital where he was told that the authorities cannot keep the body.

Lal’s landlord, Babloo told the police that Lal lives on the third floor of the building and it is not well ventilated so there was a possibility that the body might begin to decay in the cramped space. However, Babloo has helped Lal by giving him Rs. 2000 and arranging him an AC ambulance to preserve the body.
With no option left, Lal went around the streets of Delhi with his wife’s body in an ambulance for almost four hours until he was spotted by the police staff near the Cross River Mall. On knowing about the whole matter, the staff called up Bhaswar Singh, a businessman residing in the area, around 12:30 a.m.
Later, Singh helped Lal by letting him keep the body at his home overnight. “Some police staff and Singh’s staff helped Lal perform the last rites of his wife who was cremated today morning,” said Lal.
