Unidentified man found hanging from tree at Kharghar
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.
