Bikanace says she was crossing the Vesida Bridge and noticed a male corpse lying facing down in the creek.
“The children were playing in the creek and I was standing across the bridge when I noticed an odd object which looked like the backside of a man in the river. So I asked one of the boys to go and check it and he said it was a man. Then we called the Police.”
Another eyewitness, Rekha Mani says this is not the first time a body has been found in this creek.
“I’ve been staying here for about nine years now and this is the fourth body that has been found in this river. It’s very scary.”
