Semi-composed bodies of an elderly couple were recovered from an apartment in the city's Girish Park area on Tuesday, a senior police officer said. Neighbours alerted the police after they noticed that foul smell was emanating from a flat on the second floor of an apartment on Ram Dulal Sakar Street, he said.

The police broke open the door and recovered the bodies of Biswajit Mitra (71) and Sipra Mitra (68). "Preliminary investigation revealed that the couple was depressed due to financial crisis.
