In a shocking case of corruption, a policemen under UP police has allegedly burnt a man in the garbage waste to pocket the money given for the cremation.

The incident occurred in Baghpat where the local police has allegedly burnt an unclaimed body with the waste and as per the reports, the accused policemen kept the money of around Rs 2,700 given to carry out the final rituals.

The police department had issued Rs 2,700 to the accused policemen for a proper ritual and cremation of the unclaimed body but a video which went viral on social media suggests otherwise; where the policemen is seen burning the body in the waste.

The police was adviced to buy a shroud of Rs 300, and Rs 400 to get the body to the cemetery and the remaining amount of Rs 2,000 for the cremation process.

A former Director General of Police Vikram Singh told Times Now that “it is expected of police personnel to give a proper cremation or burial to unclaimed bodies of unidentified persons. However, the fact that the policemen decided to pocket the money given to them by the department and burn the body along with waste shows not just blatant corruption but inhumane behaviour on the part of the erring policemen.”
