A 24-year old man was found dead in mysterious condition on Tuesday in Vijaya Apartment, a high rise in Ahinsa Khand-2, Indirapuram.
The deceased has been identified as Sachin Singh, a native of Baghpat district in Western Uttar Pradesh. Police said that he was preparing for competitive examinations and was living with Ranvir Singh, his paternal uncle in Shipra Suncity, a housing society in Indirapuram.
Police received the information about Sachin’s death from the security guard of Vijaya Apartment. “The deceased had injuries on his head and shoulder and so it looks like a suicide case. However, we are still investigating the case,” said Sandeep Kumar Singh, the SHO of Indirapuram police station. “Initial probe has revealed that security guards were present at the main gate of the society, but Sachin’s name was not registered in the entry list. We are checking the footage from the CCTVs installed in the society to find some clues,” added the SHO.
Meanwhile, the police said that the incident had happened at 10th floor of Vijaya Apartment where Sachin's maternal uncle lives. Ranvir said that last he last saw Sachin on Monday night when he was going to bed and has no clue what happened later in the night.
“We returned from a birthday party around 11.30 pm and then all of us, including Sachin went to sleep. We have no clue how he went to his maternal uncle’s society. I received the information about his death around 7 am from his uncle,” Ranvir said.
Ranvir also said that Sachin looked upset since the last few days. “He seemed sad for the past few days and I even tried asking him, but he never told me anything," he told. "He must have gone to his maternal uncle’s house and jumped off the balcony,” Ranvir added.
“Meanwhile, the family of the deceased is claiming the incident as a suicide and don't want any investigation into the case yet,” said Sandeep Kumar Singh. However police is investigating the matter from all the angles, Singh added.
Police have sent the body for autopsy and reports are awaited.
