QUANZGOU — In the southeastern Chinese city of Quanzhou, a well-known Buddhist monk named Fu Hou has been mummified and encased in gold leaf.

Fu Hou died in 2012 in the wake of spending the majority of his life at the Chongfu Temple on a hill in the city of Quanzhou, according to the temple’s abbot, Li Ren.

Right after his death, the monk’s body was washed, treated by two mummification experts and sealed inside a large pottery jar in a sitting position, the abbot said.

When the jar was opened three years later, the monk’s body was found intact and sitting upright with little sign of deterioration apart from the skin having dried out, Li Ren said.

The temple decided to mummify Fu Hou to commemorate his devotion to Buddhism and to serve as an inspiration for followers of the religion.

According to The Associated Press, it’s “a practice reserved for holy men in some areas with strong Buddhist traditions” and was done to honor Fu Hou’s dedication to the religion.

Sen never allowed his wives to look at her body and used sex toys to maintain the illusion of being a man

UTTARKHAND — A woman in northern Indian state of Uttarakhand was arrested for posing as a man to marry two women and allegedly tortured one of them for dowry.

Identified as 25-year-old Krishna Sen, who also goes by the name of ‘Sweety Sen’,from Dhampur in Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnor district, allegedly dressed up as a man for four years, duped two women from Uttarakhand’s Nainital district into marrying her and tormented one of them for dowry, police in Uttarakhand’s Haldwani said on Thursday, The Indian Express reported.

Sen created a fake Facebook profile under the name Krishna Sen in 2013 and subsequently posted her photographs in a man’s attire. She used the account to get in touch with women, according to Nainital SSP Janmejay Khanduri.

She first married a woman telling her she was the ‘son’ of CFL bulb businessman from Aligarh.

In 2014, Sen and her family members travelled to Kathgodam in Uttarakhand to meet a 22-year-old woman he got to know on Facebook. “Sen had convinced her that she was a man,” Khanduri said.

Sen then in 2016, married a 20-year-old woman from Nainital district’s Kaladhungi area and moved to Hardwar with her, police said.

In October 2017, Sen’s first wife lodged a complaint against Sen in Kathgodam police station under charges of dowry and domestic violence alleging that Sen had taken Rs 8.5 lakh from her family, saying that she needed the money for a factory she owned in Hardwar, police said.

Sen told the police during interrogation that she has been a tomboy since childhood. The woman also cut her hair to look like a man and used to drive a motorcycle and smoke cigarettes.
