Bhopal: In one more shocker which exposed lucrative approach of medical system and apathy on the part of officials, the body of a tribal woman was carried on a cot for post-mortem in Madhya Pradesh’s Singrauli district. The deceased identified as Jagmati Pando died after being allegedly bitten by a poisonous insect in forest area.

The incident was reported from a locality around 25 km away from district headquarters in Singrauli on Monday. Following her death, family took the body for post-mortem on a cot due to unavailability of hearse vehicle at the time.
