Kolkata: A decomposed body of an elderly woman was found inside her house on Sunday afternoon.
Police went to the spot after getting information that a foul smell was coming from the house.
According to sources, since Sunday morning, residents of Rakhal Mukherjee Road in Sarsuna experienced foul smell coming out of the house at 1/1A, Rakhal Mukherjee Road, which belonged to Rabindranath Chatterjee.
As they didn't get any response from the occupants of the house, neighbours called up the police control room in Lalbazar.
After a few minutes, police personnel from Sarsuna police station went to the house and saw the elderly woman identified as Chaya Chatterjee (82) was lying dead.
The body had already decomposed. Later, the police sent the body for autopsy.
