Kolkata: A tribal woman has been found living with the decomposed body of her father in Burdwan district of West Bengal, police said on Sunday.

This came to light in Mukhtarpaar in the Burdwan district on Saturday after the locals noticed a foul smell coming out from the house and suspected a foul play after which they approached the police. 

Police, who subsequently disposed of the body, said it was kept in keeping with a tribal practice.

"Inside the house, we found the decomposed body of Panchu Soren, who must have died at least 4-5 days back," said a police officer.

In June 2015, a Kolkata man, was found living with the corpse of his sister and two dogs for months.
