Two dead bodies were recovered in Bardez Taluka on Friday at two different places and the cause of death in both the cases is still not known.
In the first case, police took custody of the body of Pravin Bhagwant Rao Somavanshi, a tourist from Latur-Maharashtra who suddenly collapsed while sitting at the beach along the Arpora-Baga coastline.
The exact cause of the death of this 28 year old lad is not known and the autopsy report is awaited. Meanwhile, his family has been informed about the unfortunate development.
In the other case, police fished out the partially decomposed body of 35-year old Paulo Jose Cruz near the Sirsaim jetty. The dead body was identified on the shoes that were found on Thursday evening at Aldona ferry wharf. Incidentally the body was seen floating in the river on Thursday but efforts to fish it out failed and it was recovered only on Friday after it got washed near the Sirsai jetty.
Paulo Jose Cruz hailing from Corjuem was working as a bouncer in a casino and whether his death is a suicide or murder or accident is still not ascertained.
