A large contingent of police force along with SDM and other police officers reached Swarnarekha Burning Ghat at Bhuiyandih at around 9 a.m. in the morning.

As soon as the administration team arrived with the dead bodies of corona patients, the locals started opposing the cremation.

They were claiming that cremating the bodies amidst a densely populated bustee would help spread the disease among the local population.

They were insisting that an alternative site be found for cremation of such patients.

However, the district administration officers clarified that since electric crematorium was not available elsewhere, the bodies would be cremated there and there is no chance of it causing any sort of risk to the local population. But, the locals remained adamant. And when the policemen started to forcibly remove them, they started pelting stones. Two lady constables were injured in stone pelting and they were rushed to hospital for treatment.
