A 43-year-old man, identified as Subhabrato Mazumdar has been arrested for strangely keeping the corpse of his dead mother in a freezer for almost 3 years for an obviously absurd reason.

The man from Kolkata area of India reportedly kept his mother in the deep freeze so he can collect her pension every month using her thumb impression, according to The Indian Express.
