Body of village officer recovered from Munnani check dam in Kottayam
Kottayam: The body of special village officer Prakash, who jumped into the Manimalayar river, was recovered on Wednesday morning near the Munnani check dam in Kottayam.
The Munnani check dam is situated approximately half a kilometer from the Manimala bridge. The fire force team from Erattupetta and diving experts located the body.
Prakash jumped into the Manimala bridge on Monday morning and kept his bag and other things on the bridge. Though a migrant worker jumped immediately into the river after he saw Prakash struggling, he was unable to find him.
The native people and fire force were conducting search operations for the past few days but were unable to locate the body. After the inquest, the body will be taken to the medical college hospital for autopsy.
The body will be released after all formalities. Police said that financial difficulties could have been the reason for Prakash to take the extreme step.
