Mohali: Man dies after falling from 8th floor of housing corporation

An unidentified man died on Friday after falling from the eighth floor of a housing company on Airport Road in Zirakpur.

Assistant Deputy Inspector Rajesh Kumar, the investigator, said none of the CCTV cameras installed in the company recorded the incident. The victim, who appears to be in his twenties, died at the scene after suffering multiple fractures. His body was kept in the morgue for identification.

“There was no entry in the main door register, suggesting he entered through the back door. No one in the company could identify him. We are investigating whether the victim died by suicide or fell accidentally,” he said.
