The body of Akshay Jadhav, a resident of Patan taluka, was found at Khanducha Wada in Yerad village this afternoon, a senior police official said. Jadhav was last seen by his parents yesterday morning when he left his house saying that he was going out to finish some important work, he said, adding that Jadhav's body was spotted by some locals.
