ROURKELA: The impasse continues over the murder of an aged patient S Mundari (60) at the Infectious Ward of Rourkela Government Hospital (RGH) by a fellow patient, with Mundari's family members  refusing to take possession of the body even after a week of the incident. 


They are demanding compensation of `10 lakh and job for one of the family members.
On January 29, a young fellow patient, Yadav Munda (25), beat  Mundari to death by using a PVC panel of the window screen. RN Pali police on Saturday again tried to convince the family members to take possession of the body. 


However, before they could do so, the members of Sundargarh Zilla Adiwasi Mulwasi Bachao Manch (SZAMBM) appeared and stopped them.


Later, the deceased patient’s family members, joined by former MLA Halu Mundari and SZAMBM leader Letha Tirkey, refused to take possession of the body.
 RN Pali IIC Manas Swain said if they continue to re

main adamant, then autopsy of the body would be conducted in presence of an executive magistrate and buried as per law.
RGH Chief Medical Officer Dr RC Behera said the body continues to be preserved at the morgue of Rourkela Government Hospital.
