In yet another case of medical apathy, a man was forced to carry his wife's dead body on a motorcycle to reach his home for her last rites after being allegedly denied a mortuary van at a government hospital in Bihar's Purnia district, news agency ANI reported.

"After the death of my wife I was told to take away the body and when I requested the medical staff on duty for a vehicle to carry it back to my village, they told me to arrange for it on my own," said Sah, whose 50-year-old wife Susheela Devi died of illness at the Purnia Sadar Hospital on Friday.

The latest incident comes just a day after footage of a destitute woman's body being carried in a garbage cart to hospital in Muzaffarpur for post-mortem examination, triggered an outrage and prompted the district authorities to launch an inquiry.
