Police recovered the body and sent it for an autopsy. Later, Maitro was questioned. During the interrogation, he claimed his mother had died approximately 18 days ago but police suspect Krishna might have died 10 days ago. The sleuths suspect Maitro is not mentally sound as he said he was not having any problem with his mother’s decomposed body. On Monday, Maitro claimed his mother instructed him to bury her body after her death as they are Christian. “I was planning to bury her body inside the house. Later, I changed my mind and planned to bury it in the garden. But nothing has happened till now,” he said.

If any foul play found in the autopsy report, a fresh case may be initiated according to the provisions of law.
Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global There’s so much you need to run a business: a great idea, access to capital, industry knowledge, passion. Should coding be on that list, too?Programming skills were high on the wish list of startup entrepreneurs at the recent SXSW Interactive festival in Austin, Texas. One reason: Investors seem to take a liking to those in-the-coding-know.

Big pause. “No,” the entrepreneur said, dejectedly. “I wish.” Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. min read The market for online classes and night-school courses in programming is hot, according to the New York Times. A number of startups — including the touted Codeacademy — are catering to this new crop of coder wannebes, the paper reports. The thinking is that with so much business gravitating toward the Internet, it’s critical that today’s entrepreneurs learn the language of the computer — or at least enough that they won’t be left behind.Of course, programming skills aren’t everything — and startup entrepreneurs who don’t have them can still hire IT staff (if the budget allows) or outsource talent if need be. Many entrepreneurs with bright ideas but minimal computer skills pair up with technical co-founders, too.One item left out of all the recent discussion about coding: Sure, you can teach an entrepreneur how to code. But can you teach a programmer to be an entrepreneur? That’s a much trickier talent to learn. If you have to have one or the other, entrepreneurial abilities still seem far more valuable than fluency in HTML.Is it necessary for entrepreneurs to learn how to code?
