A middle-aged beggar from Hyderabad carried his dead wife in a cart for 60 kilometers, unable to arrange money for the ambulance.
Ramulal wished to take his wife’s corpse to his native place in Medak district but lost his way and reached Vikarabad instead. He came to Hyderabad six years ago with his wife Kavitha, 46. His wife suffered from leprosy and Ramulal suffers from the same too.
Kavitha died on Friday night near Lingampally railway station due to ill health. Vikarabad Circle Inspector Ravi informed that “On Friday night, following Kavitha’s death, Ramulu decided to take his wife’s body to his native village for the last rites. However, he couldn’t afford an ambulance service. So, he put his wife’s body in a pushcart, and started walking.”
Police were informed about the same when people saw Ramulal crying over his wife’s dead body. Later on, an ambulance was arranged and Kavitha’s body was taken to Ramulal’s native place.
