The condition of Rajasthan is troubled due to corona infection. In the guise of this, many types of frauds are going on indiscriminately. The condition is so bad that after the death of the infected, recovery is also being done for their cremation. This money is going to the brokers. Leave aside the common man, the brokers did not spare even the judicial officer who went to Udaipur to investigate. The judicial officer raided 13 crematoriums. Brokers in Mokshadham crematoriums located in Hiranmagri Sector-3 and Governance-Vilas Sector-13 demanded 15,000 and 2100 rupees respectively.
This amount was only to fill the corpse of the corona infected. Many other expenses ranging from girlhood on the pyre to burning the dead body were separately sought. After the news came in the media, at the Ashok Nagar crematorium, the officials appointed 5 employees and set up boards related to giving information to the administration if someone demanded money. The Deputy Mayor also formed a team led by the Inspector to oversee it.
District Legal Services Authority Chairman RP Soni sent ADJ and the authority’s secretary Kuldeep Sutradhar to inspect the 13 crematoriums. At the same time, he was asked for 15,000 rupees at one center and 2500 rupees at one. He immediately made a report and submitted it to the Corporation Commissioner and the SP. It was asked to register the details of the dead person who was cremated and to arrange the cremation. All the police station heads also Against brokers Asked to take action.
RP Soni said that the constitution not only gives anyone the right to live life with dignity, but also the right to a dignified funeral after death. He said that this right of the person should be preserved posthumously, so all cremation ghats should be inspected. Please tell that rupees are also asked to be taken from the hospital to the crematorium. In this game of brokerage, only 5-8 thousand rupees are taken to burn a corpse.
‘Rajasthan Patrika’ investigated in this regard and found that this racket is active from the morgue to the crematorium. People involved in this say that they are doing all this putting their lives at risk, so they are made to give so much money. More than 200 such funerals have taken place in Udaipur district in 15 days. Brokerage is collected in rupees ranging from wood to other similar, while the Municipal Corporation has arranged an ambulance to transport the corpse.
During the investigation of the magistrate, the broker also said that if the person did not have Kovid-19 infection, he would have cremated for 3000 rupees. The broker also gave his number and asked him to arrange 6 quintals of wood according to the weight of the corpse. A broker even kept an ID card and proudly told him that his cremation grounds had been occupied by his family for the last 4 generations.
