A leather technologist in his fifties was detained by Kolkata police on Wednesday night after he was found living with his mother’s body that he had preserved in a refrigerator at his house for the past three years.

Subhabrata Majumdar’s mother Bina died on April 7, 2015 in a private nursing home. But Majumdar applied ‘mummification’ techniques to preserve her body in a commercial freezer used to store ice-cream and frozen food in stores, police said.

Majumdar was detained from his two-storey house in Behala on the southern fringes of Kolkata by officers from the local station and the Kolkata homicide department, who were acting on a tip-off. Majumdar’s father Gopal, who too lives at the house, is also being questioned.

Police found a second freezer, similar to the one in which he kept his mother’s body, at the house. Both freezers were on the first floor. The Majumdars used to stay on the ground floor.
