The police suspect Santok Bumrah, 84, committed suicide.

His daughter-in-law Rajinder Bumrah had filed a missing person's complaint on Friday at the Vastrapur police station, Solanki said.

According to the complaint, Santok Bumrah had come to Ahmedabad from Uttarakhand on 1 December to meet Jasprit Bumrah, but he had gone missing on Friday night after he left their house at Vastrapur without informing the family members, the official said.

According to Solanki, this appears to be a case of suicide and a probe is on.

"We have sent the body to the civil hospital for post-mortem and have registered a case of accidental death," the officer added.

The 24-year-old Ahmedabad-born pacer, Jasprit Bumrah, a regular in ODIs and T20s for India, was recently picked in the squad for Test series against South Africa beginning next month.
