In a highly shocking incident, a retired policeman and his wife were found living with the dead body of their daughter who dies one month ago in Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh.
Going by the reports, couple Dilawar Siddiqui (65), and his wife had been living with their daughter’s decomposed dead body at their residence in Hathiya Pathak area of Hayat Nagar in Mirzapur. Their daughter, Zeenat, purportedly passed away around a month ago.
The incident came to light when the the neighbours informed the police about a stench coming from Dilawar Siddiqui’s house. The police forced their way into the house and found the corpse. The body was sent for post mortem.
Prakash Swaroop Pandey, additional superintendent of police, said “The couple, it appears, is mentally disturbed and he kept telling us that his daughter was alive and sleeping.”
The post mortem report will reveal the cause of death of the deceased and further action would be taken thereafter, he added. The neighbours said that the couple never interacted with them and always remained aloof.
Siddiqui had retired in 2015 and lived with his wife and daughter in the house. He has two sons who live in other cities and police is trying to find them. Pandey said though Zeenat appeared to have died of natural causes, the police are probing the matter.
