New Delhi: Police in South East Delhi's Kalkaji area had to attend a grim scene on Monday when they found a 90-year-old man living with the decomposed body of his wife.

The incident came to light when the neighbours of Govind Ram informed the police about a stench coming off from Ram's house on Monday night.

Police, however, maintained that the 90-year-old man was mentally deranged and had been living with his wife's body in a one-room flat in Kalkaji.

According to the police, Gopi had passed away few days ago. Inside the flat, Ram was lying on the bed while the deceased woman was lying on the floor.

The elderly man himself was in a neglected condition. When Ram's relative was informed about the incident, they took him to the AIIMS hospital where he is currently undergoing treatment.

"Govind Ram told us his wife, who was bed-ridden for the last few years, fell down from the bed yesterday and did not get up. He is frail and undergoing treatment at AIIMS," police said.

Ram was living off of his pension and was sustaining a hard life with his ailing wife.
