This shocking incident from the capital of West Bengal might again leave you thinking where this country is heading to. A man from South Kolkata’s Behala did not cremate the body of his mother who died two years ago and instead preserved the corpse in a commercial freezer.
According to reports, Subhabrata Majumdar, a leather technologist in his fifties, was living with her dead mother in the fridge till it was recovered. The motive behind the act is yet to be ascertained. Both Subhabrata and his father have been detained for interrogation.
According to Hindustan Times, the dead woman and her husband worked at the Food Corporation of India (FCI). Subhabrata Majumdar worked for a leather products company, but left the job five years ago.
Hindustan Times was informed by a police officer that Majumdar had removed the internal organs from his mother’s body for preservation. “Chemicals such as formaldehyde were used for preservation,” said the officer on condition of anonymity.
