Unclaimed ashes immersed in canal

Ludhiana, June 8

As nobody came to claim the ashes of a number of persons died of Covid-19, the Ramgarhia Cremation Ground staff with support of the Dukh Bhanjan Sewa Society immersed their ashes at Gurdwara Katana Sahib on Tuesday.

Ranjodh Singh, president of the Ramgarhia Cremation Ground, said they immersed the ashes of 137 persons whose bodies were cremated at the cremation ground in the past two years. Many of them had died of the virus after the pandemic was announced last year, he said.

“We carry the unclaimed ashes in a respectful manner to Gurdwara Katana Sahib and Pracheen Shiv Mandir. The ashes were then immersed in the canal water there,” said Ranjodh Singh. — TNS
