Marie Robert Vanerik, who arrived in India July 17, was found dead Monday morning at Aurobindo Ashram in south Delhi's Malviya Nagar when the caretaker of the ashram noticed a stench emanating from her room locked from inside.

Police broke open the lock and found her decomposed body lying in the bathroom, said a police officer.

Police claim it was a natural death as no injury marks were found on her body.

She was associated with Aurobindo Ashram for the last 25 years and was a frequent visitor.
