Y Jayarama Bhat was found unconscious in the area of Hunumanatha Nagar Police. He was admitted to a private hospital. Police didn’t have much information except his PAN card. Police shared the photo of his PAN card on social media. The post was shared by many.



Ganesh Kambar, a software professional, received the image on WhatsApp and vaguely identified him. He approached the police station and went to the hospital with the police. He identified Y Jayarama Bhat and later informed his younger brother Chandrashekara Bhat, who stays in his village.

When asked how he identified him, Ganesh explained that Jayarama Bhat who works as a tailor, stitched his pants when he passed 10th standard. That stayed in his memory.

Jayarama Bhat who is 7 years elder than Ganesh, went missing 28 years ago. Jayarama was 23 years then.



The Logical Indian applauds Bengaluru police and social media users who shared the information. This story shows the power of social media and how it has come as a boon for those who use it for a good purposes.
