For two days the door of the room was closed but neighbours realised something was wrong only when a foul smell started coming from inside. On being informed by the locals, Municipality staff came and recovered the dead body from the house. Locals said, due to the countrywide lockdown, even Narayan was not getting enough money to get ration for her mother and the woman had not received ration for many months.
