KOZHIKODE: The improper burial of cadavers from the anatomy department of the Government Medical College here has sparked protests in the area as dogs dragged out body parts from the pit into a playground nearby.  

On Tuesday morning, children who came to play at the ground noticed body parts strewn all over the place. They informed the residents in the locality.

The dogs had entered the burial ground through a gap in the compound wall. The local people said the wall had collapsed three years ago.

Despite repeated  requests to rebuild it, the Medical College authorities had turned a blind eye to the issue. The body parts were buried in the presence of the Medical College police later. The Medical College authorities had given work to bury the cadavers to Nitheesh, a contractor .

Anatomy department head K Jayasree said they had entrusted the job to dispose of the waste to Nidheesh on Saturday. But he dumped the cadavers in the pit. The pit was not filled with earth properly. So the dogs dragged out the body parts from the pit.
