It is also to be noted that last year in the month of March, a dead body of an unidentified person was recovered in the Diphu Medical College and Hospital.
The body was recovered from the second floor of OPD block in the hospital after people complained of foul smell which was stemming from a closed room on the floor.
The hospital superintendent informed the police regarding the incident. Police reached the hospital and broke the door of the room.
A body hanging from the ceiling of the room was recovered.
As per standard protocols, the police then sent the body for a post-mortem.
