Hyderabad: In a shocking incident, a mother had to spend whole night on the road in Hyderabad, holding her 10-year-old’s son dead body, while heavy rains was pouring down the sky.
Jagdish Gupta, the merciless landlord said the child’s body would be inauspicious for his family. While Suresh’s mother, Eswaramma, rents a room in the house, the rest of it is occupied by Mr Gupta and his relatives, who also said they didn’t want to risk being infected.
After dawn broke, early morning walkers saw the mother and her older son huddled over Suresh’s body.
Locals expressed anger and anguish over the behaviour of the house owner, though some pointed out that there is a taboo associated with bringing home a dead body. It is believed to bring bad luck. To which a young man angrily responded, “Is there any home where a death has not happened, or will not happen?”
