A businessman fell from his flat on the ninth floor next to a tower in an upmarket condominium on Sohna Road in Gurugram. Police hasn’t confirmed whether Naresh Hasija committed suicide or fell accidentally from the balcony of his flat.
A guard at Bestech Park View City 2 in Sector 49 saw Hasija’s body around 3:00 am. There were no signs of struggle in the balcony of his flat. “As of now, we have ruled out the possibility of it being a murder. But, the investigation is still on,” said Surender Singh, station house of Sector 50 police station.
Hasija’s family said that there was no reason for him to end life. Also, no suicide note was found by the police. Hasija, who hails from Sonipat, lived with his wife and two children. They were sleeping when the incident took place and the guard who found the body woke up the family. Hasija ran an eatery in Kingdom of Dreams in Sector 29, police said.
The body has been handed over to the family after post-mortem.
“Prima facie, it looks like he did not hit any other balconies on the lower floors while falling, which could have happened if he had fallen accidentally. At the same time, the balcony railing is low and there is a possibility of the victim toppling over,” said Subhash Boken, Gurugram police spokesperson.
On Sunday night, the family watched a movie till 11pm and went to sleep, police said. “Around 3.15 am, one of the guards rang the bell and woke up the deceased’s wife. She noticed that her husband was not in the bed, but she thought he might have gone to the washroom,” the SHO said.
The guard told her that someone had fallen from the balcony and she went down and found her husband lying on the ground, the official said.
As per the post-mortem report, said Hasija died due to head injury, shock and haemorrhage. “There was injury on the left side of the head and the left shoulder, elbow and the forearm was fractured,” the doctor said.
However, there were no traces of alcohol in Hasija’s blood. “We cannot say from the autopsy report whether he fell or jumped from the balcony. It is up to the probe. We can only say that he fell from a height,” the doctor said.
