The decomposed body of a man, who was missing for the last 10 days, was found inside an overhead water tank at Rajendrapattinam near Vriddhachalam in Cuddalore district. Locals detected a foul smell emanating from the tank at around 6 p.m. and alerted the tank operator Prakash. He climbed the tank and found the decomposed body inside. The tank has been in use and about 700 Dalit families and 50 families belonging to other castes in Rajendrapattinam panchayat were dependent on it.
