The police in Kolkata, India were alerted by people regarding the decomposed body of a 70-year-old woman. The son was apparently living with his mother’s body for days without taking steps for the natural course.
The police then recovered the body from the house. Understandably, the smell was too much for the neighbours who suspected that something was wrong and brought it to the notice of the authorities.
“The body of Tapati Das was recovered from her house in a decomposed state. It has been sent for autopsy to identify the time and reason of death,” an officer from Muchipara police station said.
The son who was unstable, denied people from entering his house. He was detained and sent to a hospital for treatment.
“The son Abhishek Das seems to be mentally unstable. He was living with his mother’s dead body and refused to let anybody in. He has been taken to NRS Hospital for treatment,” the officer added.
