Delhi fire: After victims families object, bodies of Bihar residents to be taken home by road

Bowing to pressure from families of those killed in the Anaj Mandi fire on Sunday, the Bihar government has decided to send the bodies of the state s residents home by road instead of train. Earlier, it was decided that the railways will carry the bodies in the seating-cum-luggage rake (SLR coach) on board the Swatantrata Senani Express over Monday and Tuesday. However, the victims families objected to the arrangement, choosing to take the over 1,000 km journey by road instead. Many of the 43 people who were killed in Sunday s blaze were migrant workers from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. They were trapped in the building as they were asleep when the fire started. The families were not comfortable in taking the bodies by train, so we have decided to send them in ambulances. One ambulance will have two bodies. All the preparations were made for sending the bodies by train. Special coaches were also attached (to the train) but the family members (of victims) did not agree to let the bodies
