On 15th September 2021, the High Court of Uttarakhand passed an order demanding rely from the Central and State Government in response to a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed regarding performing post-mortem in a virtual manner. 


The Public Interest Litigation was filed against the present manner in which post-mortem of bodies are conducted, as per the PIL, these methods are inhuman and wrong. 

During the Covid pandemic, the post-mortem of bodies was conducted virtually with the help of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and CT scan which can continue even after the pandemic.
