NAVI MUM­BAI: A 40-year-old man who went miss­ing from Py­d­honie who went miss­ing around a week ago was found dead un­der Vashi creek bridge on Fri­day.

Some rail­way com­muters, who were cross­ing the bridge around 12.30pm in­formed the po­lice about it. The de­ceased has been iden­ti­fied as Heera Jag­ba­hadur Singh. The po­lice have sent the body to NMMC hospi­tal in Vashi for post mortem. The re­ports are yet to come.

“We found one phone num­ber in his pocket. That num­ber was of a physi­cian who knew the de­ceased and he told us about him. We in­formed his fam­ily,” said Su­raj Padvi, po­lice in­spec­tor from Vashi po­lice sta­tion.

“Prima fa­cie, it ap­pears to be a sui­cide. How­ever, it is still not clear when he com­mit­ted sui­cide and what were the rea­sons be­hind it. We don’t have much idea about his pro­fes­sion and fam­ily back­ground. The body was highly de­com­posed when we found it,” Padvi said.

The po­lice said Py­d­honie po­lice will do the fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions as they had reg­is­tered the miss­ing per­son’s case. For now, the Vashi po­lice have reg­is­tered an ac­ci­den­tal death re­port.
