In Lhanghoi, a small quaint village located amidst the lush green mountains of Sadar Hills in Manipur, a family sits demanding to at least get the body of their loved one so that they can bury her.
In an emotional bid, families of Manipur’s Kuki Zo Tribal community buried their loved ones at Sehken in Manipur's Churachandpur district on Wednesday. Bodies of 87 members, which were lying in a Manipur morgue for almost eight months were finally laid to rest by the grieving families.
