Following the instruction of Amit Shah, the last rites of some Covid-19 dead took place in Delhi.

Delhi: Following the instructions of Home Minister Amit Shah, the hospitals here performed the last rites of some Covid-19 dead with the consent of their families. This information was given by the Union Home Ministry on Tuesday. Shah’s instructions have come in light of the news that a large number of bodies are kept in the crematoriums of Delhi for several reasons, including the unavailability of confirmation of the report from the laboratory.

It said that 36 more people who died due to Coronavirus in the national capital will be cremated on Wednesday. A Home Ministry spokesperson tweeted, “On the instructions of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, all hospitals in Delhi performed the last rites of those who died of Kovid-19 in the consent or presence of their families.” The last rites of the 36 dead will be performed on Wednesday as their families were not present in Delhi.

The spokesman said that there will be no further delay. However, it is not known how many of the dead were cremated on Tuesday. The last rites were performed in cremation grounds and cremation grounds under the supervision of hospitals. After being criticized for the failure of the Delhi government to deal with the cases of Kovid-19 in the national capital, the Home Minister himself took command to deal with the coronavirus situation.


The Home Minister himself is handling the front in Delhi’s fight against Coronavirus. On Sunday, to strengthen the plan to fight the epidemic, he held two high-level meetings with Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Union Health Minister Harshvardhan, the mayors and commissioners of the three municipal corporations of Delhi.

The Home Minister had announced on Sunday that the Kovid-19 investigation in Delhi would be doubled in two days and then it would be tripled after that. Shah on Monday conducted a surprise inspection of the LNJP Hospital in the metropolis and reviewed the facilities there.
