"At around 6 pm, the priest and the other three men called the girl's mother and showed her the girl's body. They claimed that the girl died while having water from the cooler," he said.

"The priest and others convinced the woman that if she makes a PCR call, the police will make a case out of it, and during post mortem, the doctors will steal all organs of the girl. They allegedly made her agree that it was better to cremate the body," Singh said.
