Son carries dead mother on bike for post mortem

One Kunwar Bai was killed by a snake bite on Tuesday, near Bhopal's Mastapur village, in Madhya Pradesh.  Her son rushed her to a community health centre at a nearby village. However, she couldn't be saved.

When the police asked the victim's son to get her postmortem done at a hospital 35 km away from the village, the son was not provided a proper vehicle to carry the dead body.  

He then used a bike to carry his dead mother all the way to the hospital with the help of his cousin.  The incident has shocked many, as it highlights the state of healthcare in some states in India.

It may be recalled that, earlier this year, a man had to carry the dead body of his wife on his shoulders in UP for want of basic facilities.
