The police have identified the man who was found hanging in an empty local at Thane railway station on Sunday as Sunil Bansode, a resident of Airoli Sector 4 . The government railway police (GRP) have also filed a case of suicide.
On Sunday, Bansode, 45, was found hanging in the compartment directly after the motorman’s cabin at the Kalyan end of a CST-bound train. The empty train arrived at platform 4 around 4pm, when a commuter spotted the body and informed the police.
“We have sent the body for a post-mortem and have registered a case of accidental death,” said HS Jadhav, senior police inspector of the Thane government railway police.
“Bansode was identified with the help of a tailor’s tag on his pants. We traced the tailor and sent officers there with a photograph of the dead man. A woman at the tailor shop identified him as a vegetable vendor. He was later positively identified by his son-in-law,” said senior inspector of Thane GRP, HS Jadhav.
“It is a case of suicide. He had financial problems and must have decided to kill himself,” said inspector Rohini Kale. The police had found a railway tickets and a card with the name and number of Ram Teke on the man’s body. However, the Tekes could not identify Bansode.
