Dr Deepak left Bombay hospital, where he has been practising from 20 years around 3:30 PM after he received a call from his wife, asking him to return home early because of the traffic jam caused by water logging.

With the increase in traffic, Dr Amrapurkar decided to walk to his home which is 10 minutes away from his hospital.
