KOTTAYAM: The body of N. Subhash, who had gone missing on Sunday morning, was recovered from Meenachil River at Pandavom, near Aymanam, on Monday.
Subhash, a medical doctor, had jumped off the Nagambadom bridge in the early hours of Sunday. A few persons, who were fishing near the bridge had seen someone jumping off it and a search was launched immediately. The doctor had left his shoes and a bag on the bridge, which helped to identify him, the police said.
The Fire and Rescue Services personnel and the police had searched the area for over two hours on Sunday before calling it off as they believed the strong ground swells might have washed away the body.
The body was retrieved on Monday from Pandavom, which is a few kilometres downstream from the Nagambadom bridge
