Mumbai: Mumbai doctor Deepak Amarapurkar, who was missing since Tuesday after heavy rain left most of the city flooded, has been found dead. His body was found in a drain near the seashore at Worli.
Dr Amarapurkar, a senior gastroenterologist of the Bombay Hospital, was last seen on Tuesday evening when he got off his car near his home at Elphinstone Road and started walking in waist deep water.
Witnesses claim he fell into an open manhole on the flooded road just a few metres from his home; the drain ends at Worli and opens into the sea. That is where he was found this morning.
The 58-year-old doctor had to walk as his car had stalled in water. His umbrella was found near the manhole.
