Kolkata: Police on Monday found a man living with his mother’s decomposed body in Kolkata’s Salt Lake area. A post-mortem is underway to determine when the woman died. According to police, the man is not mentally sound.
“Maitreya Bhattacharya is being interrogated after neighbours complained about a stench from the house on Sunday night,” said a police officer of Bidhannagar police station, adding the police have recovered the decomposed body of the woman.
“We came know that the woman was dead. The son reportedly did not have cordial relation with her,” said a neighbour.
Some original copies of school leaving certificates and identity proofs of the woman were found pasted on the wall outside the house with some remarks scribbled around.
“Maitreya Bhattacharya needs medical help as his mental condition seems unstable,” said the police officer.
In 2015, a man, Partha De, had confessed that he had been living with his sister’s corpse for months in his South Kolkata residence.
