The country's premier medical institute, AIIMS, has been receiving criticism for mixing up two bodies — sending the body of a Muslim woman to a Hindu family and vice versa. As this negligence sparked an uproar, AIIMS sacked one staff at the mortuary and suspended another after setting up a committee to probe the matter. The bereaved families demanded police action. No FIR was registered, issue was resolved, said Police.
