Chandigarh, July 29

Punjab has laid down a detailed procedure for the cremation of infected bodies. This includes cremation within 48 hours if the victims' kin fail to claim these.

As per the guidelines, if the victim's kin fail to receive the body within 48 hours of death, the district administration, using powers enshrined under the Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897, can declare the body as unclaimed and cremate it by following due rituals.

Officials will ask kin to perform the last rites. No more than 20 members can attend the cremation. Besides, cremation grounds/graveyards can't refuse to cremate/bury an infected body. Wood or other material will be provided by the administration. — TNS
