KOTTAYAM: The funeral of a man who died of COVID-19 was postponed after locals staged a protest in front of the Muttambalam Municipal Crematorium in Kottayam.

Earlier, several locals had blocked the entrance to the crematorium and protested against the cremation which eventually led to large police force getting deployed in the area. The locals said that they will not allow the cremation of a COVID patient in the crematorium as there are many houses in the locality. Following this, a discussion was held and the district authorities finally decided to postpone the cremation and find a new place for the cremation of the body.
