HIS SON PRESERVED HIS BODY US­ING ICE

ASON has been ar­rested for keep­ing his dead fa­ther’s body in his home for six months so he could bring him back to life us­ing black magic.

DISCOVERING THE DEAD BODY

The star­tling in­ci­dent hap­pened in Giridih, In­dia, and the sus­pect, Prashant Ku­mar Sinha, was ar­rested at his home.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, po­lice had been called to the sus­pect’s home by neigh­bours af­ter he got into a heated ar­gu­ment with his mother and sis­ter and al­legedly be­gan beat­ing them. The neigh­bours re­port­edly ran to Prashant’s home to stop the beat­ing af­ter they heard screams com­ing from the house.

That is when the body was dis­cov­ered in one of the rooms.

The body was that of the sus­pect’s fa­ther, Vish­wanath Prasad, who was 75 years old.

PRESERVING THE BODY

Vish­wanath had re­port­edly died around April or May last year af­ter a long bat­tle with an undis­closed ill­ness. His son preserved his body us­ing ice and a mix­ture of chem­i­cals to stop the corpse from smelling.

His mother, Anu Ku­mari Sinha, along with his sis­ter, Mamta Ku­mari, said the sus­pect preserved his fa­ther’s body as he thought he would bring his dad back to life. Re­ports sug­gest that Prashant planned to use black magic to res­ur­rect his dead fa­ther. It is un­clear if Prashant has been of­fi­cially charged.
