The relatives of a teachers union leader, who had pledged his body to Government Medical College for medical education and research purposes, expressed their dissatisfaction over the arrangements made by the institute when they came to deliver the body today.
The relatives and former colleagues of the deceased, Sardul Singh Usma, said the college did not even send a vehicle to pick the body. “Ideally, the college should send a vehicle to the donor’s residence but here, we had to deliver the body to the college,” said Lal Singh Mohali.
The relatives also regretted that the college authorities could not give any satisfactory answer to their queries about the system of preservation and upkeep of dead bodies at the institute.
Jarmanjit Singh Bath, a former colleague of the deceased, said, “We had honoured the wish of the deceased but it is disheartening that the refrigeration room of the college is in a shambles and the bodies are left to rot.”
