In a tragic incident, a 28-year-old engineer died on Tuesday allegedly after he fell from the balcony of his fifth-floor flat at Amrapali Zodiac Society in Noida’s Sector 120 while he was talking on the phone.

Vivek Parimal, a native of Himachal Pradesh, was wishing his friend a ‘Happy New Year’ at the time of incident. “While Vivek was speaking on the phone in the balcony, his other seven friends were partying and having drinks inside the flat," police said.

According to Akhilesh Tripathi, SHO of Phase 3 police station, the engineer was apparently drunk, and his phone was recovered from the edge of the balcony. “There was loud music playing inside the flat at the time of the incident. Because of this, his friends say, they couldn’t hear him fall. However, when he did not return for more than 10 minutes, they checked on him,” he said.

The police is questioning the seven friends who were present inside the flat at the time of the incident.

Meanwhile, a security guard of the society said that the incident occurred between 12.30 pm to 1 am. We immediately informed the management of the society and other residents and called the police. “We took the body to the nearest private hospital but Vivek was declared dead,” said the guard.
