KOTTAYAM: A group of locals including women have blocked the funeral of a man who has died of COVID-19 in Kottayam. The locals have blocked the gate of Muttambalam Municipal Crematorium and are currently staging a protest against authorities. Earlier, the police had attempted to dismantle the wooden fence built in front of the crematorium following which a large number of locals assembled in the area.


According to the locals, the authorities should not conduct the funeral of a COVID patient at the crematorium as there are many houses in the locality. Meanwhile, a large team of policemen have been deployed in the area to control the situation.
