TIRUCHY: The crematorium issue has opened a pandora’s box. On Friday, two more decomposed bodies were found in the gasifier crematorium when various officials inspected the pyre. City Health Officer (CHO), who was part of the team, inspected the bodies and ensured a forensic test on them.

The political parties have been cashing in on the frenzy demanding a thorough investigation by CB-CID and severe action against the perpetrators who had shown the audacity of playing with the sentiments of the people.

After a series of talks with the aggrieved relatives and the members of political parties who insisted on opening the cremation centre to ensure that the claims of the officials were true, City Engineer (in charge) S Nagesh instructed the Assistant Commissioner (in charge) Kannan to open the centre and the police asked only certain members to enter the area near the pyre.

When they went inside, they were shocked to see two bodies lying in a decomposed state near the pyre.

In the meantime, the political parties condemned the civic body and demanded a proper investigation into the issue. “We will fight till justice is brought out. The bodies which are found today should be shifted to the GH immediately and an inquiry by CB-CID should be made”, Kovi Vetri Selvan of CPM said.

K Suresh, of the CPI said that the Civic body should ensure prompt inquiry with Rotary Club which had outsourced the functioning of the crematorium.
