Port Blair, July 21: On receiving information that availability of Mortuary Van is a major issue in Diglipur region, the Member of Parliament of Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Shri. Kuldeep Rai Sharma has recommended a Mortuary Van for the Panchayat Samiti Diglipur from MPLADS fund for the Diglipur region.

The Mortuary Van will be provided to Panchayat Samiti Diglipur at the cost of Rs. 15 Lakhs.

Once inducted, the Mortuary Van will not only help the general public during last rites of their loved one at Diglipur region but also the Mortuary Van can be pressed into use to transport dead-bodies from Port Blair to Diglipur.

Presently people of Middle & North Andaman are facing huge difficulties in transporting dead-bodies from Port Blair to Middle & North Andaman because of the high rate of private Mortuary Vans of Port Blair.
