The police and fire brigade have extracted a mummified body from a Hindu temple in the district of Neukölln, Berlin.

Police were called to the temple on Monday afternoon after the cadaver was discovered whilst building work was being done on the Sri Ganesha Temple, which is a stone tower structure in the district's Hasenheide park.

A police spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday that it was a man's body, according to Bild.

Police say that it is not yet clear why the body was there, and added that “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.”

It is also not yet known whose body it is, but the corpse was sent to the criminal investigations department for analysis. The corpse had no forms of identification on it, but the autopsy should reveal more about the cause of death.
