Jaipur, Jan 23 (IANS) Police are looking for a man who left the body of his wife at their rented house and disappeared as he did not have money to perform the last rites.
Police said Monday that Geeta Devi, 80, and her husband Ashok Kumar had been living in the city’s Bhrampuri area for 10 months.
“She died of old age (Sunday) evening,” a police officer told IANS.
The landlord informed the police that Ashok disappeared after her death.
“An auto driver conveyed the man’s message to the landlord that he did not have enough money to perform the final rituals,” said the officer.
The landlord went to the couple’s room and found the body on the bed.
The police have put the body at the mortuary of SMS Hospital and launched a search for the missing husband.
“The couple did not have much at the rented accommodation. We did not find anything except for some clothes and utensils,” said the officer.
