Days after a horrific three train accident killed 275 people and injured more than a thousand others, Odisha is facing a morgue crunch. Unclaimed dead bodies have filled Balasore's mortuaries, with officials being forced to relocate 187 of them to the capital city of Bhubaneswar. It is pertinent to note here that makeshift spaces including school premises had also been used to house victims as rescue efforts continued earlier this week.
