Gurugram: The New Year party celebrations turned deadly as a 32-year-old died of falling from the 10th floor of his residential building here on Monday. The deceased has been identified as Hitesh.
The police are now trying to ascertain whether there was any ulterior motives involved in the tragic incident or was it just an unfortunate incident. The body has been sent for post-mortem.
The incident was reported at 1:30 am on January 1 when Hitesh along with his colleagues was celebrating the New Year party at the balcony of a residential society.
The joyous event, however, turned tragic when Hitish tripped from the balcony. He was rushed to a nearby private hospital, but succumbed as lot of blood had been lost.
The deceased had moved to the apartment just one and half months earlier.
"We have begun our investigations in the matter and are grilling the friends who were present there at the incident," said a Gurugram police official.
This is second major such incident in less than four months. In September 2017, Ankit, a 26-year-old graduate from IIT Kanpur, allegedly committed suicide by jumping from the 23rd floor of DLF Magnolias at Golf Course road.
Police said the main reason for Ankit's suicide was acute depression faced by him.
Law enforcement officials had claimed he was grappling with depressions and was dissatisfied with his job, which led him to take the extreme step.
