He had no vehicle to take home his wife’s body from a government hospital, which is 60 km from his village. Dana Majhi’s wife Amang Dei died due to tuberculosis at the hospital in Kalahandi on Tuesday night. According to Majhi, he requested the hospital to provide him an ambulance but authorities told him that they cannot help.
