In a shocking act of apathy, rats nibbled at the hand and feet of the body of a rickshaw puller that was kept at the mortuary of Mahatma Gandhi hospital in Bhilwara on Wednesday. It is the second incident in the last five days when bodies were bitten by rats.

According to deputy SP, Kotwali, Narsi Meena, “There were injury marks on the hand and feet of the rickshaw puller. Four days ago, we had shifted body of a prisoner whose nose was bitten by rats,” he added.

However, the hospital administration refuted the allegations. Principal medical officer Dr KC Panwar said, “Those marks found on the hand and feet of rickshaw puller were not due to rat bites. It must be due to some other injuries,” he added.

The sources said the mortuary in the hospital is more than 25 years old and it is not in a good shape. The Urban Improvement Trust also proposed to construct a new mortuary at the hospital to stop such incidents.
