In a shocking turn of events amid Coronavirus lockdown, a man from Dilwari village in Chhatarpur, Madhya Pradesh has returned home, three years after he went missing and was assumed dead. The man claims that he fled to Delhi as some people conspired against him in a theft case.

'I am happy to be back'

"I fled to Delhi as some people were trying to falsely accuse me in a theft case. I am happy to be back," news agency ANI quoted Uday as saying. According to Sitaram Avsaiya, Sub-Divisional Police Officer, Bijawar, in 2017, an FIR was registered after Uday went missing and while searching for him, the police had recovered a skeleton.

"His father identified the skeleton remains as his from a piece of cloth. An investigation will be done to identify whose skeleton it was," the official said.
