New crematorium at Singtam

SINGTAM, 02 May: Singtam Baikunth Sewa Samiti has developed a new crematorium at the Teesta river bank. The construction was funded by NHPC. In order to prevent anti-social elements from loitering in the area, the Samiti has decided to put bars around the crematorium. The president of the samiti, Sundar Rai has thanked NHPC and Kumar Agarwal for their contribution in building the new crematorium. The samiti has appointed a watchman for the crematorium and plans to plant trees, flowers and maintain cleanliness in the area. There are also plans of building toilets and provide drinking water as well as benches. Sudden release of water from the Stage-V reservoir upstream by the NHPC had created a nuisance for the area, washing away a dead body from the pyre in a recent past, it may be recalled.
