The Delhi High Court on Wednesday issued notice to the Delhi Government on a plea seeking directions to allocate additional places for cremation of bodies of the Covid-19 deceased in Delhi.

The division bench of Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justice Jasmeet Singh sought Delhi Government’s response on a plea which also seeks guidelines for the cremation of those whose loved ones cannot cremate them due to Covid-19. 

The Court was hearing the petition filed by Jaswinder Singh Jolly, who has raised the fundamental right of every individual to get his last rites/cremation in a honorable, decent, and dignified manner which is safeguarded under Article 21 of the Constitution of India.

Advocate Sanjeev Sahay, on behalf of the petitioner, has put forward the facts of the case before the Court and pleaded for the exemption of court fees due to a technical error in the server while making the payment.

However, the Court refrained from exempting the fee. “Court fees cannot be exempted just for the matter that the server did not respond well,” it said. 

Advocate Sahay submitted that the catastrophic second Covid-19 wave is ravaging the country and has led to a steep increase in deaths of coronavirus patients in Delhi, with crematoria witnessing a huge influx of bodies. The families of the deceased are facing severe difficulty in cremating their loved ones in a noble manner.

He submitted that there was a lack of places in Delhi for cremation. The families of the deceased have been running from pillar to post to find a facility for cremation and sometimes they have to wait as long as 20 hours for the last rites. The Court tagged the matter with a similar other matter and will hear the matter on May 17.
