Former NIT professor rescued

B.R. Srinivasan, a former professor of Mathematics of the erstwhile Regional Engineering College-Tiruchi (now National Institute of Technology), who was found in a state of amnesia in Coimbatore and admitted to the government hospital by some members of the public, was brought to Kangaru Karunai Illam in Tiruchi on Tuesday night by its volunteers.

A video of Prof. Srinivasan of Srirangam, believed to be in his late seventies, saying that he could not recollect his past, went viral on social messaging platforms.

His acquaintances in Srirangam identified him and arranged for his return to Tiruchi by approaching the old age home, which is trying to trace his relatives.
