In a shocking incident reported from Uttar Pradesh’s Varanasi, two sisters were living with their dead mother’s body for over a year, police said on Wednesday.

The incident came to light when the sister’s neighbours complained about something suspicious happening after the women did not come out of the house for more than a week.

According to the police, their mother died in December 2022, but her daughters did not perform her last rites and kept the body locked in a room at the house in Mandarwa locality.

The dead woman’s husband had left home two years ago and did not come home even after his wife’s death while their two daughters — Pallavi Tripathi (27) and Vaishvik Tripathi (18) — did not cremate the body and kept it locked in the room.

While Pallavi and Vaishvik have been living with their mother’s dead body since then, the neighbours suspected something suspicious only a week back when none of them came out of the house for a long time.

Both of them had not been leaving the house for the last week and its door remained closed, raising suspicion among the neighbours who knocked on the door but when it did not open.

Based on the information, the police reached the spot and began an investigation.

The cops knocked on the sisters’ door, but no one answered and the officers broke it down and entered the premises.

Upon entering the room, the police team was shocked to discover the decomposed corpse of the deceased woman lying on the floor while her daughters were also found sitting beside their mother’s body in the same room, the police.

The sisters have been taken into custody.
