The corpse was found by the coast guard personnel who immediately informed Panambur police. The corpse was later taken to Wenlock hospital for autopsy.

The corpse was identified positive by the family members of the deceased based on hos raincoat and tattoo.

The deceased was working at the railway station and was on his way to his rented house at Jeppinamogaru on August 16. However, he never reached his house and eventually his bike was found abandoned at Netravati bridge. The bike being new also contained its documents.
