Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh:
A retired police inspector and his wife were found living with their daughter’s month-old decomposed body in Uttar Pradesh’s Mirzapur, the police said today.
The family’s neighbours informed the police about a stench coming from their house. The police forced their way into the house and found the body.
Superitendent of Police Prakash Swarup Pandey said that the neighbours had complained about the foul smell from their house days ago. When the police came to check, the retired cop turned him away saying that all was well in his family.
“The couple, it appears, is mentally disturbed. They kept telling us that his daughter was alive and sleeping,” Mr Pandey said.
The neighbours said that the couple never interacted with them and always remained aloof.
