Eye Stolen from Body Kept in Bhilai Hospital Mortuary
Unidentified people stole an eye from a dead body kept at Bhilai Steel Plant (BSP) hospital mortuary in Chhattisgarh, police said Saturday.

The incident that took place Friday stunned the industrial city Bhilai, 30 km west from here. The deceased, 32-year-old C.H. Srinivas, was admitted to the hospital last week after he met with a road accident.

"Someone has exhumed one of the eyes of a road accident victim at Bhilai Hospital mortuary Friday. Police have registered an FIR and have interrogated hospital authorities," Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rajesh Mishra told IANS over telephone.

He stated that hospital authorities had informed the police that the deceased had no injury on both his eyes when the body was shifted to the mortuary from the hospital bed.

The family members of the deceased Saturday alleged involvement of the hospital authorities in gouging out the eye and refused to accept body till the guilty people are arrested.

"The Bhilai Steel Plant management has set up a committee to probe into the matter thoroughly and submit the report at the earliest. It's really a shocking incident," said Bhilai Steel Plant spokesman Ashok Singhai.
