**Puri:** A decomposed body, suspected to be that of a missing Jharkhand tourist, was found at the sea beach near Shri Jagannath Sanskrit Vishvavidayalaya (SJSV) in Puri today.
As per reports, a few youths from Jharkhand had visited Puri around four days ago and two of them had gone missing while taking a bath at Beleswar Beach.
Family members of the missing tourists have been called to identify the body after which its post-mortem will be conducted, informed IIC of Sea Beach Police Station, Biswa Ranjan Senapati.
He further said that body washing ashore near the SJSV is not normal. It may have arrived at the spot due to the cyclonic storm ‘Titli’.
Is it a case of murder or a natural death can only be ascertained after identification of the body and post-mortem, added Senapati.
