Grave of the unknown migrant?

A native of the state of India who died in late August of hepatitis, along with an unidentified corpse suspected to be a recent illegal migrant, are being held by two towns in the east of Slovakia while local officials decide who pays for their funerals. If the town of Michalovce and Slovak border and aliens police are unable to contact the Indian’s relatives, the Slovak town will have to pay the costs of the funeral itself. The second body, found near the village of Petrovce pri Sobrance on Slovakia’s border with Ukraine, will likely be buried among the graves of unknown Soviet soldiers from the second world war conflict.
