Forlorn man mournfully carries dead wife six miles in Odisha

'This is extremely distressing. We are enquiring into the matter. We are also taking steps to have ambulances to transport bodies,' Orissa Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik told reporters.

The state government has launched a free hearse service in the state following the incident, he added.

Public hospitals in India often refuse to provide ambulances to relatives to carry the bodies of loved ones home, forcing them to hire expensive private hearses.

'Some allegations have been made and we have also seen the video. We will investigate the alleged lapse,' V. T. Mishra, inspector general of police for railways in the coastal state told AFP after the most recent incident.

India's public health system suffers from massive shortages of infrastructure and manpower, with government spending accounting for less than five percent of GDP, according to the World Bank.
