No concrete bridge to his village: Assam boy carries brother's body on cycle Viideo of a boy carrying body of his brother on cycle surfaced at Majuli island in Brahmaputra in Assam had gone viral. ANI Twitter

Guwahati: Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal expressed concern and directed officials to conduct an inquiry after a video of a boy carrying body of his brother on cycle at Majuli island in Brahmaputra here surfaced online.

The video footage showed a boy using a cycle to carry his brother's body. He was crossing a bamboo bridge, which is the only link between his village, Luit Khabalu, and the mainland. Ambulances cannot travel due to the absence of a concrete bridge in the area, officials said.

The boy was taking his brother's body back home from the hospital to perform last rites, they said.

Sonowal directed the director of health services to rush to the village and conduct an inquiry, officials said.

In September last year, a video of a man carrying his wife’s body on his shoulder in Odisha had gone viral.
