Mumbai floods: Missing doctor Amarapurkar's body found near Worli

Mumbai Floods: Missing Doctor found dead in worli

The doctor had abandoned his auto and made a decision to walk a stretch of 10 minutes from near the Elphinstone Road railway station.

Reports say that the deceased can be Dr. Deepak Amarapurkar, HOD Gastroenterology, of the Bombay Hospital, who went missing on 29 August, 2017, from near India Bulls lower Parel.

Much later, his body washed off the Worli seashore and he was identified by his imported wrist-watch. Dr. Mishra said that the civic body was responsible for the floods and the open manholes too.

Amarapurkar, 58, was a senior gastroenterologist working with Bombay Hospital and is survived by his wife and two children. He was last seen getting out of his auto, which was stuck in water, near his home at Elphinstone Road. The drain ends at Worli and opens into the sea, where his body was found on Thursday morning.

Indian Medical Association Mumbai chapter criticised Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and wrote to BMC Commissioner seeking inquiry into the death of the doctor. "His house is just 10 minutes away from where he left the vehicle". The 58-year-old doctor had to leave his auto in waist-deep water near the Elphinstone Road station, the police said in a statement. Four people were killed in Thane, another four died in Palghar in the backdrop of incessant rains. "We have recovered his umbrella from the spot and have informed other authorities", said a police officer.

The Meteorological Department said that the city recorded 298 mm of rainfall, the highest in a day since 1997. As interim measures, it seeks that grilled covers be placed on all open manholes.
