Crematoriums claim that the last rites of 2,557 Covid victims from Bhopal district were performed in April, sharply contradicting the BJP-led state government's data.
"Altogether, 2,052 people were cremated at our facility last month. As many as 1,654 of them had died of Covid," crematorium secretary Mamtesh Sharma said. "These 1,654 bodies came from Covid-19 designated centres in air-tight plastic bags as per the protocol to prevent the spread of the disease," he said.
