Nearly every day 10 dead bodies reach the AIIMS mortuary, including the hospital and its surroundings. Due to the absence of freezer in the mortuary, the freezer available in the Department of Anatomy is being used, but this system is internal, which is being used in special circumstances.
A compressor of the freezer in the mortuary is not working. Because of this the dead bodies are not being kept. This information has been given in writing to the patients and their relatives in advance. The engineers were out, so the compressors could not be repaired. It is being fixed soon. Keeping dead bodies outside is not allowed in AIIMS.
