Chandigarh: The body of Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) of Anandpur Sahab Karanveer Singh Mann was found in the Bhakra canal near Kotli Power House today, a day after he went missing, police said.

Mann went missing under mysterious circumstances after he parked his official vehicle near Bhakra Canal yesterday evening. His phone was also found lying in the vehicle.

Kotli Power House is around 25 KM from the Divisional Headquarters of Ropar in Punjab.

Police said some passersby informed about the body, and when it was fished out, it was identified as that of the SDM.

They said Mann, who had recently joined the Punjab Civil Service (PCS), might have committed suicide by jumping into the Bhakra Canal.

His body has been sent to the Civil Hospital here for post mortem after which it would be handed over to the family.

Meanwhile, Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today condoled the "untimely and tragic demise" of Mann.

An official release said Badal described Mann as an able administrator, who always performed his assignments efficiently.
