When the parents got the news that their son had died in an accident, they contacted the Zimbabwe Embassy to bring their son’s body to Zimbabwe. The Zimbabwean embassy had approached an organization called Pekshi in Ahmedabad, which was involved in sending bodies abroad and was involved in transport. Sending bodies was a challenge for the organization as flights were canceled due to the Corona epidemic. But the institute’s forensic expert, Dr. Vinesh Shah and Dr. Megha Gaurang Patel has sent the body of a young man from Zimbabwe to his hometown.
Dr. Vinesh Shah said due to the lockdown, it would take more time to send the bodies. The body was kept after the embalming process so that it would not decompose. The legal process was completed and body has been flown to his hometown of Zimbabwe. Due to lack of direct connection of the flight, it was diverted from Ahmedabad and sent by road from Johannesburg to Zimbabwe. A special coffin was made to send the corpse.
Dr. Megha Patel said, “Our organization works to send bodies on normal days through domestic flights as well as international flights. But with flights closed in this lockdown, sending the bodies to Zimbabwe was a challenge for us. However after completing the legal process, the body of a student of Parul Institute has been sent to his hometown where his parents and family members have paid their last respects”.
