An old man and his sister along with their dog were found dead at their residence in Tatya Tope Nagar in suspicious condition. It is suspected that the trio died around four days ago but the incident came to fore on Tuesday after foul smell started emanating from their house.
The deceased have been identified as Mohanlal Ranjomal Otwani (80) and his sister Shanta Ranjomal Otwani (75). Mohanlal was a retired employee of Railways and owned a house adjacent to the petrol pump. The duo had no relations or contact with neighbors or the people living nearby.
At around 3.30 on Tuesday afternoon, the petrol pump employees informed the police control room as the smell became unbearable. The control room then informed the Bajaj Nagar police, who rushed to the spot and broke open the main gate. The police then broke open the main door, which was also locked. When the police entered the house, they noticed Shanta’s body lying on the floor and Mohanlal’s body at some distance. The police sent both the bodies for post-mortem and are investigating the cause of death.
