A former chief income tax commissioner who went missing under mysterious circumstances early Wednesday morning after he went out of his flat in south Mumbai’s Cumballa Hill for a walk, returned home late in the night.

S G Rajguru, who was last posted as the chief income tax commissioner in Ahmedabad, had joined a leading construction firm in Mumbai as a tax and legal consultant following his retirement. He and his wife live in a flat at Petit Tower, off Bomanji Petit road in Cumballa Hill area. He had an earlier stint in Mumbai.

A nephew of Rajguru lodged a missing person complaint at the Gamdevi police station at around 10 am stating that he did not return home after he went out for walk at around 6.30 am. He said that Rajguru’s wife did not accompany him as she was not keeping well for some time. On Wednesday morning he had left home while his wife was asleep and did not carry his mobile phone or wallet.

The Gamdevi police and the crime branch launched a hunt following the complaint.

Senior Inspector Netaji Bhopale of Gamdevi police station said relatives of Rajguru informed them about his return at around 9 pm. “We will talk to him later to find where he had gone without informing anyone in the family,” he said.
