When they could not find him, they started looking in the sailors’ cabins. Chatterjee’s body was found hanging in one of the cabins, said Colaba police officials. Chatterjee had used an electric wire to hang himself. The frigate officials informed the Colaba police station around 10am on Tuesday.
After the police reached the spot, they found an official document related to a loan that Chatterjee had taken, and his mobile phone lying near his body. No suicide note was found.
