Now, Aadhaar of the dead necessary to cremate bodies at Varanasi ghats 30.5.2018 DNA: Top News
The Aadhaar has been made mandatory for cremating bodies at the Mannikarnika and Harishchandra Ghats in Varanasi that, according to Hindu tradition, give ‘moksha’ (state attained as a result of being released from the cycle of rebirth) to those who have died.  A decision to this effect was taken by the authorities after the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) came across several complaints of relatives cremating bodies of those who died in honour killing, dowry-related cases or even those facing criminal charges without informing the police. Most of these complaints came from districts adjoining to Varanasi on Bihar border. The NDRF runs a free mechanised boat service to ferry bodies from Bhiansasur Ghat to Manikanika and Harishchandra Ghats for cremation. The service was started on the initiative of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.   To avoid frequent jams and crowding of bodies coming from Bihar and other side of Ganga at Manikarnika and Harischancdra Ghats, the authorities had introduced a new ...
