Rodents mutilate body in GH mortuary

PONDICHERRY MARCH 29 . A body in the mortuary of the Government Hospital here, was found mutilated by rodents during night. Lack of attention on the part of the staff on duty necessitated the authorities to take action against the staff.

A release from the Health Minister said on Thursday that an enquiry by a senior medical officer had also been ordered and the report was expected for follow up action against the staff for dereliction of duty. Should there be recurrence of such incidents, the authorities would take disciplinary action against erring staff, the release said.
