Man stored mother's body in freezer for 3 years for withdrawing her pension
In an incident that makes us doubt the levels to which humanity has degraded, a man was found to have kept his mother's body in deep freezer for three years after she died, as he wanted to keep withdrawing her pension.

The man in his late fifties has been identified as Subhabrata Majumdar. He was arrested by Kolkata Police on Wednesday night after coming to know of the incident. 

As per reports, Majumdar's mother, 80-year-old Bina had died on 7 April 2015 but  Majumdar took help of mummification techniques to preserve the body from decaying and stored it in a freezer. 

The police have detained the victim's son and are questioning his father as well who also used to live in the same house. He was reportedly aware of the development but was scared to alert the police.  

The neighbours got suspicious when they noticed a high capacity air conditioner installed on the first floor of the house - a floor that was largely vacant except for the deep freezer. What increased their suspicion is the fact that the AC would run all the time.  

But this does not seem to be a mere case in which the son would do it for money that he used to withdraw from the pension account. As per a report in Times of India, the son has claimed that he preserved his mother's body because he was sure that she would be brought back to life.   

Majumdar used to work at a leather factory so was well aware of the chemicals used for preservation.  

This incident is similar to the one reported in 2015 from Kolkata in which a 46-year-old software engineer Parthe De had for months lived with the decomposed bodies of his elder sister and two pet dogs.
