Two days after Dr. Deepak Amrapurkar went missing in the torrential rains that lashed Mumbai on Tuesday, his body was found at the Worli seashore. According to reports, he fell down a manhole.

Gastroenterologist Dr. Deepak Amrapurkar, 59, was returning home from the Bombay Hospital on Tuesday when his car got stuck in traffic and he decided to cross the distance on foot.

“He asked driver to take car home and decided to walk since he thought it will take less time. Our house is 10 minutes away from where he was,” Pallavi Godbole, his niece, said to media.
