Odisha Man Carries Dead Wife 

A 35-year-old man from Odisha’s Koraput walked for 33 km after his wife died in an auto-rickshaw while returning home from a hospital. Policemen spotted Samulu Pangi and arranged an ambulance to take the body of his wife Ide Guru (30) to his Sorada village in Pottangi block.


Pangi had admitted his suffering wife to a hospital in Sangivalasa in the Visakhapatnam district of Andhra Pradesh. Nevertheless, the doctors there said she was not responding to treatment and advised him to take her back home, around 100 kilometers away, reported Deccan Herald.


Pangi said he hired an auto-rickshaw for returning to his village but his wife died midway near Vizianagaram. The auto driver then refused to continue the journey and dropped them on Chelluru Ring Road before leaving the spot.

Police come to rescue 

Finding no other way, Pangi started walking towards home, still around 80 kilometers away, carrying his wife’s body on his shoulder.


After seeing Pangi in such a situation, the locals called the police. Rural Circle Inspector TV Tirupati Rao and Gantyada sub-inspector Kiran Kumar stopped him. Initially, the Andhra Pradesh policemen were finding it difficult what Pangi was saying due to language problems. Later, one person was found who understands the Odisha man’s language.

The police officials, after understanding what all happened, arranged for an ambulance that took Pangi and his wife’s body to his village. While Pangi thanked the police for their help, the locals appreciated the men for their timely response.
