Boy leaves house to meet relatives, found dead below friend’s flat
Mystery shrouds the death of a class XI student who died after falling from the 11th floor of a building in Ghaziabad’s Indirapuram on Wednesday night. Police said that the boy had come to meet one of his acquaintances at a society considered to be posh in the area but was found lying in a pool of blood beneath another society’s tower.
He was taken to a hospital where he was declared brought dead. During initial investigation, police have suspected suicide but are saying that the investigation will be carried out from other angles. The family, however, have suspected that the boy has been murdered and have demanded a proper inquiry.
According to the reports, 16-year-old Varun Rajput was a resident of Noida’s Sector 22. On Wednesday evening, he had gone to meet a relative living in a flat in Indirapuram but was found dead at Aditya Mega City, another society located in the same area. Police said instead of going to the relative’s house, he went to meet one of his female friend living on the 11th floor of Aditya Mega Society and was found dead under mysterious circumstances.
“The boy reached his friend’s flat at around 7 pm but about two hours later a guard of the society found him lying on the ground. He made a PCR call and the boy was taken to a private hospital where doctors declared him dead. The boy was identified with the help of a mobile number and his family was informed thereafter. His body has also been sent for post-mortem, the report of which is awaited,” said a senior police official investigating the case.
“The boy has been murdered for a reason which should be investigated properly. There was no sign that he was upset/depressed that would have forced him to commit suicide. On the day of incident, he had happily gone to Ghaziabad hence we suspect he has been killing. The matter should be probed properly,” said a family member.
“We have been scanning his call details and are talking with his friends and relatives. We are also scanning CCTV footage of the society so we could get more information,” said a police official.
