The girl's father along with his 17-year-old son, other family members and villagers were present during the last rites. The girl's father has sought justice in the case of his daughter's death.
Earlier, the girl's body was brought through an ambulance from Kallakurichi Government Hospital. Earlier, the body was kept in the hospital for 10 days. The girl's mother signed the documents to get the body for the last rites.
On Friday, the Madras High Court had questioned the delay in accepting the body and directed the girl's parents to collect the body on Saturday morning, after which they agreed. An ambulance carrying the girl's body and a police protection vehicle collided with a container-lorry on Tiruchirappalli bypass road, about 10 km from Veppur, though no casualties were reported.
