The family members of those killed in the orgy of Churachandpur violence have been waiting for an unanimous consent of the people to possess the bodies.
In a joint letter to the Churanchandpur Joint Action Committee on Wednesday, they appealed to its members not to bury their lifeless family members till the final settlement of the issues confronting them.
During their consultation on Tuesday they resolved to decide their future course of action on Thursday after the expiry of the ultimatum to the tribal MLAs to quit by Wednesday.
