While dead body of a woman awaited postmortem, rats nibbled her body that was in the hospital. The postmortem was important to know the truth behind death of the lady but before it was carried out, rats ate up ears, nose and other parts of the body. The incident occurred at the Civil Hospital of Thane. The broken windows and doors enables these rats to enter the hospital and sometimes dogs too enters the hospital.
When contacted the Civil Surgeon he accepted the incident and said that this happened because of the negligence of ward boy who kept the dead body in passage instead of cold storage which has air conditioner in it.
