The Mayor of Pratapgarh district who had gone missing from Mumbai on May 17, was found injured at a hospital in Bengaluru.
After four days of intense search by Rajasthan and Maharashtra police, Kamlesh Dosi, a second time mayor of Pratapgarh, was found in unconscious state with severe injury marks on his head and body. Dosi's family, who were running from pillar to post to get information about their lost son, breathed a sigh of relief after he called them over phone on Monday noon and informed about his location.
Dosi, told his family that he had boarded a train from Kurla (Mumbai) for Burhanpur station on Thursday night and didn’t remember anything after that. However, he informed his family that when regained his senses, he found himself in a hospital and realised that the gold chain and bangle were missing and there were few scratch marks on his wrist and neck. "Soon after we received Kamlesh's phone call, we were joyous and tears flooded our eyes. We immediately informed our relatives in Bengaluru and they took him home on Monday", Shantilal, his paternal uncle. Dosi who is on his way to Pratapgarh took a flight from Bengaluru to Ahmedabad on Tuesday.
Moreover, it was when he looked for his identity card to book his flight that he realised that his wallet was also missing. "When he informed us that his identity card is missing. We sent the scanned copy of his card to our relatives on email for flight ticket booking", Shantilal added.
On May 18, Kamlesh's brother had lodged a missing complaint at the Kotwali police station in Pratapgarh and two teams had gone to Mumbai in search of him. Doshi went to Mumbai on May 16 and was supposed to go to Burhanpur for a religious trip and to meet a few Jain saints however, his family couldn't contact him after Thursday as his mobile phone was switched off.
As per Kotwali Police, his last location was Kurla station before his mobile went off the radar. Mumbai police had also scanned CCTVs around the hotel where he stayed and questioned the taxi driver who had dropped him at the station. The last footage retrieved by police showed Dosi getting on the train on May 17.
Apart from the mutual search operation launched by two states to find 45-year-old Dosi, Chittorgarh MP CP Joshi and UDH Minister of Rajasthan Shrichand Kriplani had also reached Mumbai where they met Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Mumbai DGP to seek help.
