B’luru floods: Body of Mithun fished out after 34 hrs - 1 min read


Bengaluru: The body of Civil Engineer Mithun Kumar (28) was fished out of an open drain in KR Puram after a 34-hour search on the morning of Sunday June 19.

It can be recalled that Mithun, a resident of Gayatri Layout in KR Puram, was washed away in the storm water drain (SWD) right next to his house after torrential rain lashed Bengaluru and the city outskirts on Friday night.

The search operation resumed at 7.00 am on Sunday, said Dr. K. V. Trilok Chandra, Special Commissioner, BBMP, Mahadevapura Zone. Soon after the warning was issued on Friday night, a team of 50 NDRF and SDRF officials was deployed to search for the body. They had searched a 2-kilometer radius around the location.

Kumar fell into the drain while attempting to save his parked bike from being washed away. Though his friends tried to lift him out of the drain, they failed and he was washed away.

The government will give Kumar’s family Rs. 5 lakh, said BBMP Chief Commissioner Tushar Girinath. Following a postmortem, his body was given to his family. On Monday, his final rituals will be performed in Sagar, Shivamogga District.

A police complaint had been filed by Kumar’s younger brother, Satvik.
