Nipah: Doctor performs last rites of deceased

Kozhikode: Going beyond the call of duty, a doctor here performed the role of a pall bearer to conduct the last rites of some of those who lost their lives to the deadly Nipah virus. With close relatives staying away due to fear of contracting Nipah, Dr R S Gopakumar, Health Officer of Kozhikode corporation, took the responsibility of handling 12 bodies, whose final journey was supervised by him. Earlier he was given the responsibility to oversee the burial of the Nipah victims but later on he took up the duty of performing their final rites as well. From the Central team, Dr. Gopakumar had learned the proper way of burying the dead bodies.
