A black thread tied around his leg helped relatives of Sanket Jadhav, 21, to identify him. Four of the five members of Jadhav family died in the building collapse at Mazgaon on Friday morning.

“Till Saturday his sisters Pallavi and Mansi had been identified. Today ( Sunday) we could identify him and his mother. Swollen and disfigured bodies made identification difficult,” said their relative Anjay Sarpare.

The family resided on the third floor of the building for more than 10 years.

Jadhav’s father, Chandrashekhar 55, who was the last alive person to be rescued from the debris, continues to remain critical at JJ Hospital, Byculla.

“We have not told him. Doctors said that if we tell him, he might go in shock, he is already very scared and frightened,” said another relative.
