Punjab: Six-year-old spends three days with rotting body of mother

Mohali (Haryana): When the police broke into House number 537, Phase-2 here on Friday, it was stunned to find the rotting body of woman hanging from the ceiling fan with her six-year-old son sitting on a sofa by the side. “I told Mummy that she should not hang herself otherwise she would die, but she did not listen to me”, Arman told the cops.

The police were informed by the neighbours, when the stench from the body became unbearable.  The dead woman was identified as Jaspinder Kaur. Her husband is in the army and is posted outside the city. Arman said that after his mother hanged self, he did not eat anything on the first day.

Later, when he felt hungry in the night, he looked around the house and managed to find some biscuits. However, they lasted only till Thursday and he stayed in the house without any food till Friday. The neighbours told reporters that for the last 2-3 days, Arman came out of the house in the evening and played with other children in the park and then went back to his house after dark. However, he did not tell anybody about his mother’s suicide.
