A man allegedly involved in a narcotics-related offence fell to his death from a building in Maharashtra’s Mumbai, reportedly while attempting to evade action against him by a team of the Delhi Police. A case of accidental death has been registered in connection with the incident.
The deceased was identified as Davi Roy, a resident of Evershine Nagar in Mumbai’s Malad. In 2017, a case related to drugs was registered against him in Delhi. On Tuesday, a Delhi Police team contacted the local police and sought help to apprehend Roy. A joint team arrived at Roy’s residential society. The team, along with the society’s watchman, went to Roy’s apartment and knocked at the door.
The knocking went unanswered. Later, neighbours informed that they have not spotted Roy for some days. The cops then left as they assumed that nobody was present at the house. Later, Roy was seen lying in the compound of the society. He was dashed to a hospital, where he was declared dead, The Times of India reported.
The man plunged to his death while trying to climb down the building to escape from police action. The Bangur Nagar police have filed a case of accidental death in connection with the incident.
This comes days after a woman in Telangana’s Hyderabad apparently filed a false complaint alleging that she was gang-raped by her neighbour and two of his friends. As per reports, the woman in question told the police that she resorted to filing a false complaint of gang-rape because her neighbour had refused to give her a sum of Rs 10,000 for medical treatment.
The police have sought legal opinion for taking appropriate action in the case. The details of the FIR lodged on the basis of the woman’s complaint, and the latest statement given by her have been sent for legal advice, an officer said.
