Patna: A thirty-something man died after falling from the roof of a four-storied residential building behind the AG Building on Birchand Patel Marg on early Monday morning.
As reported, the guard of the building that has two flats on each four heard a loud thud sound around 3:00 am on Monday morning. As he looked for the source of sound, he found the blood-drenched body of a man in the narrow area between the two sides of the flats.
The guard then woke up all the residents in the building but no one could recognize or identify the man.
With the victim still breathing, he was rushed to the Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) where he died shortly.
Kotwali police station in-charge Rama Shankar said that only after a post mortem, the real cause of the man’s death could be confirmed.
Officials speculated that the victim, possibly a member of a theft ring, after climbing the stairs of the building to the roof, was climbing down a pipe to gain entry into one of the apartments through its balcony and fell on the ground while trying to do so.
On the other hand, there were more than one set of footprints on the roof giving rise to speculations that he may have been thrown by someone else who was with him.
Police are investigating the case from various angles.
