Taking the widespread of the Covid virus into consideration the government imposed restrictions on funerals, marriages, and other functions so that the virus is not spread further. But people are not getting the seriousness of the situation and not showing interest in following the rules and regulations.

As an incident of sheer negligence, more than 150 people have taken part in the funeral of a man who was infected with the virus, which resulted in 21 people breathing their last.

The horrific incident was reported in the Sikar district of Rajasthan. Burying the corpse of the Covid-19 patient not on the lines of Covid guidelines resulted in 21 people breathing their last. More than 150 people took part in the funerals.

Quite contrary to the belief, the sub-divisional officer of Lakshmangarh Kulraj Meena said, our investigation has found out that a lion share of deaths in the incident is a result of their age as most of them are old-age people.

Ruling out the possibility of Covid-19 behind the deaths, the sub-divisional officer said there is no truth that Covid was behind the deaths, reports claimed.

In order to bring awareness about the virus spread, the local authorities had done a sanitisation drive in the area to create awareness of the Covid situation. Congress Rajasthan chief Govind Singh Dotasra made a tweet on the issue and removed it later/

'With profound grief, I have to say that more than 20 people have lost their lives and several are infected,' his tweet reads, which was removed later.
