A class 10th student of Ryan International School, Greater Noida, who committed suicide by jumping from the 13th floor of Panchsheel Greens, a high rise society, on Wednesday evening is identified as Arpit Siwach. His identity was revealed by the police on Thursday morning.
Siwach was a resident of Gurjinder Vihar, a residential township in Greater Noida. He reportedly reached Panchsheel Greens around 2.00 pm.
As per the police, he was roaming outside the society since afternoon and had requested one of the vendors standing nearby for his mobile to call someone. But how and at what time he had entered in Panchsheel Greens premises and reached the second last floor, was yet to be determined by the police.
According to the president of Apartment Owners Association (AOA) of Panchsheel Greens, Vikas Kumar, a message was circulating on WhatsApp that a boy from Gurjinder Vihar had gone missing. “Around two-hours after the boy jumped. Meanwhile, I had received a message in my WhatsApp that a young boy was roaming around Panchseel Greens, whose parents are searching for him,” said Kumar.
He further said the message read, “ This boy is missing since today morning. His last location was traced near Panchsheel Greens. If anyone finds him, contact on 9910388455, thanks, Naveen Siwach.”
"I immediately called on the given number and I told them about the incident that had occurred in our society. The boy's kin reached the morgue around 11.30 pm and identified his body,” Kumar he added.
Jitendra Sharma, Investigating Officer (IO) in the case also confirmed that the deceased was identified by his father. “Family has identified the body. Postmortem is underway,” he said.
Over how the boy had entered the society and reached the top of the building? Sharma said, “Let us check the CCTV footage only then I will be able to comment on it.”
Speaking about the security at the society entry and exit gates Kumar told CitySpidey that the security guards do not check people entering in the society. He further claimed that CCTV cameras installed at the gates are functioning. "All residents decided that the CCTV footage would be checked in the presence of Police officials. It is a part of the investigation," Kumar added.
When CitySpidey tried to get in touch with the deceased's school, they got no response.
