Shocking News has been doing the rounds on the internet and people are finding it hard to believe. A man whose last rites were performed by his family members after he was declared “dead” due to COVID-19 at a hospital surprisingly returned home after two years in Madhya Pradesh’s Dhar district.
The family members of 35-year-old Kamlesh Patidar were shocked on Saturday when he knocked on the door of his maternal aunt’s house in Karodkala village at around 6 am, almost two years after they performed his last rites, a family member said.
His Family had performed his last rites
Kamlesh Patidar’s health was ruined during the second COVID-19 wave. He was admitted to a hospital in Gujarat and later doctors declared him dead. After the hospital handed over the “body” to them, the family members performed his last rites, his cousin Mukesh Patidar told reporters on Saturday.
Now, he has returned home but he has not revealed anything about where he stayed during this period,” the cousin said.
He got infected with COVID during the second wave
Kanwan police station in-charge Ram Singh Rathore revealed that according to the family members, Kamlesh Patidar suffered from a coronavirus infection in 2021 and was admitted to a hospital in Vadodara (Gujarat).
The doctors declared him dead due to COVID-19 infection, following which the family members performed the last rites of the body given by the hospital in Vadodara and then returned to their village, he said.
The family members came to know that he was alive when he returned home on Saturday, Rathore said. The matter will be clear after recording the statement of Kamlesh Patidar, the official said.

The number of active cases in the country stands at 57,542 and 19 deaths have been recorded in the past 24 hours. The daily positivity rate, an indicator of the spread of infection, is 5.61 percent.
