In a shocking bit of news which was emerged from a hospital morgue in Punjab he dead body of an ex-Army man’s wife was allegedly chewed upon by rats. The family of the deceased staged a protest outside the hospital on Friday over the alleged negligence by the hospital staff.

She died of cardiac arrest on Thursday while undergoing treatment at Indus hospital in the city. Her daughter, Chamanpreet Kaur, said that the body was shifted to the hospital’s mortuary after her death, as per the procedure.
However, when the daughter went to the mortuary to receive the body, she spotted stains of blood on her mother’s ear and face.
