Nashik: Tension prevailed at the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) office at Sharanpur road here on Thursday when CIDCO Muslim Trust members brought a dead body in the premises demanding allotment of a plot for burial purposes in the Cidco locality, police said.

This is the second incident of this kind in a month as the the Trust has been for long, demanding a new plot especially in the unfunctional Pelican Park, for burial purposes, since the capacity of the old burial ground is over.

However, the NMC has not alloted any plot so far.

Enraged, the body of a Muslim NMC employee who passed away today was brought to the office premises for burial. The Trust members have refused to take back the body till the civic body authorities announced a plot for the burial ground, CIDCO Muslim Trust told reporters outside NMC here.

The Trust members had earlier brought a woman's body to the NMC office premises but had withdrawn their stir after assurances by NMC Commissioner BD Sanap.

However, Sanap has now been transferred and Nashik Collector P Velrasu is in-charge of NMC.

He assured that as soon as the new Commissioner takes over a decision would be taken on the matter soon following which the body was taken away, police said.

Meanwhile, security has beefed up around NMC to prevent any untoward incident.
