Muzaffarpur: After encephalitis wreaks havoc, skeletal remains of several bodies found behind SKMC Hospital

Speaking to news agency ANI, SK Shahi, Medical Superintendent of SKMCH has said, "Postmortem department should do it with a humane approach. I'll talk to the Principal & ask him to constitute an investigating committee." An investigation team said unclaimed bodies were being burned behind the hospital.

Bihar’s SKMC Hospital in Muzaffarpur has been under media and public scanner since the news of the deaths of over 100 children has been noticed by the nation. Many parts in Bihar, particularly the Muzaffarpur area is reeling under an encephalitis epidemic as hundreds of cases have been reported from this region.
