An unclaimed body was found lying in a highly decomposed state in the mortuary of a government hospital in Indore due to alleged negligence of staffers, prompting authorities to order a probe into the matter.
The matter came to light after a picture of the body, which looked liked a skeleton, surfaced on social media.
In the picture, the body was seen lying on a stretcher at the Maharaja Yashwantrao Hospital (MYH) in Sanyogitaganj
area in Indore in Madhya Pradesh.
"We have formed a committee for a probe into the matter. Strict action will be taken against any employee found
guilty," MYH superintendent Dr Pramendra Thakur said.
