According to the police, the 73-year-old woman and 45-year-old daughter, who were daily wagers, were living apart from the rest of the family for a few years. The duo had visited the hospital on April 26 as they were feeling unwell.

On Sunday morning, one of their relatives was passing by when she noticed a foul smell emanating from the house. She informed another relative, who knocked on the doors. When there was no response, the police were called and they broke open the door to find the two bodies.
