Bantwal: Satish Shetty (42), son of the late Babu Shetty hailing from Bardail in Eliyanadugodu village, ran a small-time business in Mumbai and lived in Thane district of Maharashtra.
He had arrived here recently to attend the village fair. He had left home to return to Mumbai on March 30 but had not reached there.
His wife therefore had filed a complaint in the Kanakia police station in Mira Road in Thane. His whereabouts since then were not known.
A passersby spotted a male body in totally decomposed state on a hill near Shetty’s native home here earlier. The family members identified it as Satish Shetty on the basis of the trousers and shoes he wore.
Family sources indicated that Satish may have faced a financial stress in Mumbai and might have consumed poison to end his life. The sources did not see any chance of foul play.
The Punjalkatte police have registered a case.
