Mumbai: Covid-19 patient’s missing body traced after four days | Mumbai News

MUMBAI: Four days after goof up over the missing body of a 70-year-old Covid-19 positive patient, the KEM Hospital, Mumbai officials traced his body in morgue on Tuesday.
The Bhoiwada police had registered a missing complaint and were probing it. “On thorough examination of CCTV footages it transpired that the body was moved to morgue. However, there was no record of that but after two-day search of the police and the KEM authorities the body was traced,” said a police official.
Police then immediately summoned deceased Sudhakar Khade’s son-in-law Ankush Jadhav who identified his body. As more than 36 hours had lapsed, the hospital requested the family to cremate the body urgently. Jadhav and the BMC officials then cremated Khade’s body on Tuesday afternoon.
Sudhakar Khade was admitted to KEM Hospital on May 18 with Covid symptoms.
His report tested positive after which his condition deteriorated. At around 9.30am the doctors called up the family and informed that Khade was serious and on ventilator. On May 19, the hospital again called up Khade family early morning around 5.30am and the call went unanswered. Around 10.30am when Jadhav called up the hospital to enquire, the hospital told him that they were unable to trace Khade.
On May 21, the hospital called up Jadhav, asking him to identify an unknown body. Khade then approached the Bhoiwada police and lodged a missing complaint.
BJP leader Kirit Somaiya too had taken up the matter and tweeted about the goof up of the KEM hHospital.
