Dr Amrapurkar's colleague, Dr Prashant Kerkar, surgical oncologist from Bombay Hospital said, "We had lunch in the Hospital cafeteria on Tuesday, after which Dr Amrapurkar said that he was leaving for home. Some of us did try to tell him to wait till things got better, but maybe, he thought things were settling down and left for home. I heard that he did call his wife, who is a doctor, saying he was going to walk home. There is no news after that."
