The Mumbai rains, which have wreaked havoc in the regular lives of the people since 29 August, have claimed another life, as one man fell in an open manhole on the Matkar road in the Elphinston area near Dadar. Incidentally, the manhole ends at the Worli seashore, where his body was found this morning.

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

A completely swollen body of Dr. Deepak Amarapukar was found near the Worli sea shore. "Amrapurkar's family has identified the body and it has been sent for a post mortem at Sion Hospital", Assistant Commissioner of Police, Sunil Deshmukh told The Indian Express.

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

Just before he disappeared into the manhole, he had called his wife Anjali Amarapurkar, a pathologist, saying he would reach home in five to 10 minutes.
