"As this is a matter for the Finnish police to investigate and also out of respect for the family, we are not in a position to discuss the topic in further detail. We are in contact with his family for all help and to work out any necessary arrangements," she added.

Sudhan was sent to Finland by TCS in February 2016 for a project and worked in the financial services domain.

He had gone on an outing with friends on the second weekend of September. However, when he did not report to work the next day, his colleagues notified the Indian Embassy and also filed a missing person's complaint with the police.

Sudhan had talked to his mother on September 8. He had visited India two months ago for a short visit, ToI quoted Sudhan's father Balakanna as saying.
