Yet another enigma:Mummified bodies found in Hindu temple

Mummified bodies extracted in a temple in Berlin


Surprisingly or more of shockingly a mummified body was found in a Hindu temple in the district of Neukölln, Berlin by the local firemen and police.

It is pertinent to be noted that a building work was being done on the Sri Ganesha Temple which is basically a stone tower structure in the Hasenheide park in the district when the corpses were discovered on a fine monday afternoon and the police were called on site.

It is to be noted here that in hindu religion it is a tradition to cremate the bodies by burning them and not burying them.The police is still trying to find out whose bodies could these be and if they have any connection with the temple.

It is also being  found out what purpose was being served by that land before the temple was built on it.

The whereabouts of the owner of the land are being looked into for.

The police is primarily treating it as a suicide case but the other options at the table are also being looked at closely.


To quote Bild and as confirmed by  a policeman on Tuesday that  it was a man’s body.


However the police is still trying to find out why the corpses were buried there, and according to them “there are no clues as to whether this was a capital office or suicide.”


All the police could say was that the body had clearly been there “for a long time.”


There are no whereabouts of whose body it was and none to claim it, but the corpse was sent to the criminal investigations department for analysis. No identification could be found on it but the autopsy should reveal more about the cause of death.But the claimants wilL stilL be a hard task to find out!!

Largely Opposed Office Plan In Berlin Abandoned By Google

Kreuzberg, which straddled the Berlin Wall that divided East and West Berlin during the Cold War, has traditionally been a bastion of the city's underground and radical culture.

Campaigners in a bohemian district of Berlin celebrated Wednesday after Internet giant Google abandoned strongly-opposed plans to open a large campus there.

The US firm had planned to set up an incubator for start-up companies in Kreuzberg, one of the older districts in the west of the capital.

But the company’s German spokesman Ralf Bremer announced Wednesday that the 3,000 square-metre (3,590 square-yard) space — planned to host offices, cafes and communal work areas, would instead go to two local humanitarian associations.

Bremer did not say if local resistance to the plans over the past two years had played a part in the change of heart, although he had told the Berliner Zeitung daily that Google does not allow protests dictate its actions.

“The struggle pays off,” tweeted “GloReiche Nachbarschaft”, one of the groups opposed to the Kreuzberg campus plan and part of the “F**k off Google” campaign.

Some campaigners objected to what they described as Google’s “evil” corporate practices, such as tax evasion and the unethical use of personal data.

Some opposed the gentrification of the district, pricing too many people out of the area.
