Referring to the case of a woman’s struggle to get the body of her father after St. John’s Hospital in Madivala allegedly asked for money to hand over the body, Sudhakar directed officials to resolve the issue. “It is inhumane on the part of the hospital to refuse to hand over the body,” he tweeted.
