Film Actor Bramha Mishra, best known for his roles in films such as, Manjhi: The Mountain Man, Kesari, and the web series Mirzapur, has passed away in Mumbai.
On Thursday, the police found his semi-decomposed body from his flat in Versova. The body has been sent for an autopsy at Dr. Cooper Hospital.
According to mid-day sources, Mishra's death took place 2-3 days earlier. Neighbours complained to police on Thursday morning about a foul smell coming from the flat, an official said.
When the Versova police rushed to the spot, the flat’s door was locked from inside. After opening the door, the police found Mishra's body in the toilet. “After performing the panchnama, the body was sent to Cooper Hospital for an autopsy,” said an officer.
According to reports, no injury marks were found on Mishra’s body, and hence it is being speculated that Mishra died of heart attack. “We are not going to take any decision from our side until we see the post-mortem report,” the officer added.
“We have registered an Accidental Death Report (ADR). The body was sent for autopsy at Dr. Cooper hospital,” said Senior Inspector Siraj Inamdaar of Versova police station.
Actor Divyenndu took to Instagram and informed everyone about the heartbreaking news.
"RIP Brahma Mishra. Our Lalit is no more. Let's pray for him everyone," he wrote.
