Two elderly sisters were found living with a dead body in Varanasi. The body was of the husband of the younger sibling.
The man, identified as Tarun Kanti (65), died about 10 days ago but the matter came to light on Sunday evening, the police said.
Balkrishna Shukla, SHO, Dashashwamedh Ghat, told a national daily, “The exact time and cause of death will be clear once we receive the post-mortem report.”
Sisters Sunanda Banerjee, 70, and Suchitra Banerjee, 65, lived in a house close to Munshi Ghat.
Neighbours told the police that Sunanda, a teacher at a government school, had retired about 10 years ago. Tarun was Suchitra’s husband.
The family did not interact with neighbours, though they often used to feed monkeys.
On Sunday, residents of the area informed the police about foul smell emanating from the house. Subsequently, the police reached the house and recovered the decomposing body. Biscuit wrappers were found near the body.
