Shillong, Apr 15:
The body of senior doctor, who breathed his last today after battling the noval coronavirus, is yet to be cremated.
Sources informed that his body is still lying at his residence at Nongrim Hills.
The State Government had planned to take the body to the electric crematorium at Jhalupara as per the guidelines of the WHO and Government of India.
The ashes of the late doctor would then be put in the coffin and then it will taken for burial at his farm house near Nongpoh.
However, the local residents of Jhalupara have opposed this decision of the Government since they fear that the disease would spread as the crematorium lies right in the middle of the locality.
