An uniden­ti­fied man aged be­tween 35 and 40 was found hang­ing from a tree at Ran­jan Pada at Kharghar on Thurs­day.

Some vil­lagers spot­ted the body hang­ing at an iso­lated spot around 11.45am and in­formed the po­lice.

A po­lice team im­me­di­ately reached the spot and took the body into their cus­tody.

“Prima fa­cie, it ap­pears that the de­ceased com­mit­ted sui­cide two to three days ago by hang­ing him­self with his shirt. He was wear­ing only a black trouser when we found the body,” said SN Naik, po­lice sub-in­spec­tor from Kharghar po­lice sta­tion.

The po­lice have not re­cov­ered any sui­cide note from his pocket.

“We found only one mo­bile phone on him, but the SIM was de­ac­ti­vated. We are now co­or­di­nat­ing with the ser­vice providers and lo­cal stores to iden­tify the user of that card. We can say that this is not a mur­der. We have reg­is­tered a case of ac­ci­den­tal death,” he said.

The po­lice have sent the body to Pan­vel ru­ral hos­pi­tal for post mortem. The post­mortem re­ports are yet to come.

“We have not re­cov­ered any photo iden­tity proofs from his pock­ets. So we called the lo­cal res­i­dents of that area, but no one could iden­tify him. We will cir­cu­late his pho­to­graphs to all the po­lice sta­tions in the city to check if they reg­is­tered any miss­ing per­son’s case in the past few weeks,” an­other po­lice of­fi­cer said.
