Back to life

In the state of Odisha in eastern India, Sada Tudu, 52, spent 20 hours trying to bring back to life Rajaram Murmu, head of the village of Marangatandi.

Try as he might, he failed – in the full gaze of public attention.

Murmu’s relatives got pretty fed up with hanging around so they called the police to arrest Tudu, who has been remanded in custody.
