HYDERABAD: A 30-year-old non-resident Indian, S Gautham Reddy, who went missing on the day he landed in the city from Kenya on August 29, was found dead under suspicious circumstances on Friday.

Police found his highly decomposed body in the bushes near a dairy farm in Bowenpally police limits.

Gautham Reddy was the managing director of a private firm at Nairobi in Kenya. Eight months ago, he got married.

On August 30, his brother S Venkat Reddy, a businessman, lodged a complaint with the Bowenpally police that his brother went missing from the residence on August 29 and did not return home.

Police said Gautham had been working in Nairobi since 2010. He returned to the city  at 3.30 pm on August 29. He was in a depressed state and left home at 7.20 pm stating that he would go for a walk.

Based on the complaint, police registered a case of missing and took up investigation.

Bowenpally police sub-inspector B Srinivas said they received information that a highly decomposed body was lying in the bushes and visited the place.

Police collected samples from the scene where the body was found. During investigation, police identified the body as that of Gautham Reddy.

“The body was in highly decomposed condition and there were burns on the body. We sent the body to hospital for postmortem. Based on postmortem report, we will investigate and ascertain whether it was a suicide or murder,” the sub inspector  said.
