Fans wondering what happened to Dr. Rajit Ratha (played by Irrfan Khan) in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man finally have their answer – he is indeed dead. The official Tumblr for The Daily Bugle in the Columbia Pictures films posted the following:
OSCORP CORPSE I.D.
By Dilbert Trilby
The New York City Coroners Office yesterday positively identified a badly decomposed body found in the sewers beneath lower Manhattan as that of Dr. Rajit Ratha, 46, formerly of Oscorp Industries. A resident of New York City, Ratha was born on March 13, 1967 in Jaipur, India. Ratha was the Director of Business Development in the Biogenetic Division of Oscorp in Manhattan.
While it was never shown in the film itself what happened to Ratha after Spidey saved him from The Lizard, the following deleted scene is in line with what The Daily Bugle is reporting above.
