Mysore, June 12 (SH&MTY)- At last, the mortuary attached to K.R. Hospital here has got new 'life'. The facility, which had been in a shambles due to power problem and malfunctioning cold storage and the dead bodies kept there could not be protected without rotting, has now got a 50 KVA generator costing Rs. 10 lakh.

The mortuary has already been renovated and a modern cold storage facility is being added to the set-up in a day or two.

Adequate ventilation and lighting have been provided to the room where postmortem is conducted, apart from paving the floor with tiles. Two tables have been provided for conducting tests on the corpses. It is expected that the staff at the mortuary can carry on their work without any hassles.
