As the number of COVID-19 cases in Bengaluru is spiralling all of a sudden, Bengaluru authorities have issued an order barring cremation or burial of the bodies anywhere inside the city.

A land spanning 35 acres on the outskirts of the city has been earmarked for the burial or cremation of bodies of COVID-19 victims in the backdrop of safety concerns raised over funerals held in burial grounds located amidst residential areas.

DC (Deputy Commissioner) of Bengaluru Urban District G N Shivamurthy issued an order setting apart about 35.5 acres in the villages under four Taluks of Bengaluru North, Bengaluru South, Anekal and Yelahanka.
