Something's fishy about this morgue

People in Tripura, India were shocked to hear the fish they purchased might have spent the night with a human corpse.

Hilsa, very popular in Tripura
Fish traders in Tripura have been storing hilsa, a kind of fish, in the morgue of a local hospital with the help of some of the hospital's employees.

The fish was stored in cooling boxes together with human corpses. The charge for this service was about $ 0.20 per kilogram per night. That's pretty cheap compared to private storage charges.

The idea seemed perfect: fish traders could store their fish for no money at all and the corrupt employees made a quick buck with no effort at all.

Unfortunately, for the people involved, the scheme was uncovered by a local reporter who went undercover as a fish trader. The unsuspecting hospital employees showed the reporter how they stored the fish together with corpses in morgue boxes.

The Indian health minister ordered an inquiry and suspended one of the employees.
