A retired sexagenarian scientist of Pusa Institute here was found dead in his flat on the campus in west Delhi, police said on Friday. Police said Yashvir Sood, a Principal Scientist in the Nuclear Science Department, had retired in March 2015 at the age of 62. “Field Officer Sonu Kumar informed police on Thursday about a foul smell emanating from Flat No.B1, where Sood stayed with his younger brother Harish and sister Kamla inside the Pusa campus,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Vijay Kumar said. Sonu Kumar tried to check but Kamla, who is said to be of unsound mind, did not allow him to enter the house. He later informed the police.

A police probe allegedly found that Sood was an alcoholic and under severe depression before his retirement. Sood had not withdrawn a single penny from his pension as also gratuity and other amount he got on his retirement, the official said. “Police found Sood’s body lying on a folding cot in a state of decomposition. The physical health of Harish and Kamla also indicates very poor personal hygiene and fragile health. The sanitary conditions in the house were very poor,” the official added. Kamla and Harish were admitted to the Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences while the body has been sent for post-mortem. Sood’s father too was a scientist at Pusa Institute, police said.
