Muslim youths help cremate Hindu man who died of COVID in Balrampur.

 

A group of Muslim youth helped cremate a 60-year-old Hindu man, who died of COVID-19 in Uttar Pradesh's Balrampur, as his family members were hesitant to go ahead with the ritual for fear of contracting the disease.

Mukund Mohan Pandey (60) died on Monday but his family members were hesitating on his cremation as his elder brother, Lalit Pandey, too succumbed to the virus on April 30, local people said.

Nagar Palika chairman Shaban Ali said when he came to know about this, he had some of his friends, Tariq, Anas, Guddu and Shafiq, make all the arrangements and take the body to the cremation ground.

After the arrangements were made, Pandey's son consigned him to flames, Ali added.
