It would be a gross understatement to say that there’s no dignity even in death for victims of the coronavirus. The horrid and shameful disposal of Covid-19 victims’ bodies in Ballari district is starkly captured in the video. 5 attendants in PPEs drag 3 to 4 black bodybags out of a black van and dump each like a sack of potatoes into a pit at a remote location. A man at the other side of the pit is heard giving instructions to the attendants while a JCB waits to ‘cover up’ all traces of the corpse-dumping. The video should make any right-thinking person wonder: what if those bodybags had one of our own near and dear ones?
