JORHAT, Sep 16: A former employee of the postal department was found dead under mysterious circumstances in her own residence at Banshbari in Jorhat on Saturday, after a neighbour reported of a stench was emanating from the house.
Police said that the woman, identified as Minu Ghosh, who had retired from the Silchar post office, was found unclothed on her bed and the body was in a state of decomposition.
The woman is suspected to have died about four days ago.
A neighbour said that though the woman resided with her husband Narayan Ghosh in the same house, they lived separately. Minu Ghosh had also reportedly told her that she was suffering from anaemia, but had no one to take care of her.
