FACT CHECK 

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be misleading. 

Doing a simple reverse image search directed us to an article published on April 19, 2020, which carried the same image. 

According to the news article, the incident was from the Kamareddy district in Telangana. The article further stated that the deceased was a worker who had died of prolonged illness and police had entrusted a sanitation worker with the job of shifting his body to a government hospital mortuary for postmortem.

Another report published in April 2020 also carried the same image.
