Bodies in coffins for protest

A brief halt in violence fails to bring down the anger in Churachandpur. The relatives of those killed in the recent orgy of violence have refused to accept the bodies till the controversial bills not withdrawn by the government. Nine bodies have been waiting in the coffins at the morgue of the Churachandpur Civil Hospital to be received by the relatives who are not prepared to do so in protest against the bills. Buckling under the mounting pressure, eleven tribal MLAs from the area have put in their papers so far.
