Mangaluru: In the aftermath of developing resistance from citizens of different localities in Mangaluru against burial of Covid-19 sufferers within their area, the Dakshina Kannada district government has chosen to recognize a frequent burial ground.
Lately, after protests by taxpayers on Bolar, the entire body of a Covid-19 sufferer stayed at the Creek for hours together. The inhabitants refused to permit the sufferer to be put to rest in a burial ground attached to a mosque. The victim, who was a resident of Idya at Surathkal, was then laid to rest in a floor near his property.
In an attempt to steer clear of such cases later on, the district government has identified that a burial ground on the outskirts of Mangaluru. Mangaluru MLA and senior Congress associate UT Khader explained he had discussed the issue at length with all the officers of the Dakshina Kannada district government, and had indicated that they search for a comparatively isolated distance on the outskirts of Mangaluru town so as to prevent confrontation with the general public.
“A parcel of property in Badaga Yekkuru, a few 20kilometers in the city was recognized as being appropriate for the burial earth, however, the district government is yet to take a last conclusion,” Khader said.
