Saji, a labourer left home in Aadikolly in Pulpally and had been, reportedly, missing since then. However, the family didnot filed any missing complaint. The Beechanahalli police station in Karnataka contacted Pulpally police station, informing them about a decomposed body of an unidentified person.

“A few weeks ago, Saji’s younger brother Jinesh was summoned to the Pulpally station in relation to a case,” Prajeesh, a Civil Police Officer at the station, said.

“While Jinesh was at the station, we received a call from Beechanahalli police station, enquiring if we had received any missing person complaint. We had no missing cases in our record then. Jinesh, who heard the conversation, told us that his elder brother had been missing for three weeks. He said he would like to see the body. We then alerted the Beechanahali police station. After completing the necessary formalities, he was let off on bail,” the CPO said.

According to the police, Jinesh claims to have received Saji’s death certificate from Karnataka. On Wednesday evening, Saji, who was claimed to be dead, reached the station, along with the brother.

In his statement to the police, Saji said, “I left the house on September 3 over a quarrel with my neighbour. Since I do not have a phone, I was not in contact with my family and hence that led them to believe that I was dead. I was doing labour work in several parts of Kannur. I reached Aadikolly on October 31 by 4 pm.”

“We have the photo of the decomposed body. We will send it to other police stations to see if there are any missing cases,” he said.  The police can take the body; we will not stop them,” An office-bearer of St Sebastian church said
