Naga woman falls off building, dies
A 27-year-old woman from Nagaland died, while two of her male colleagues suffered critical injuries, after they fell from the fourth floor of a building in an inebriated state in South Delhi’s Safdarjung Enclave area on Sunday, police said.
According to the police, the victims worked for a private telecom company, whose office is located on the same floor of the building.
The deceased was identified as <g data-gr-id="38">Lovili</g> <g data-gr-id="43">(27),</g> while Robert (24) and Jacob (24) were injured in the incident, police said. <g data-gr-id="39">Lovili</g> hails from Nagaland and the men from Manipur.
A police official said <g data-gr-id="41">Lovili</g> used to live in a rented accommodation in Humayunpur, whereas the men lived in Munirka.

Around <g data-gr-id="46">10pm</g>, they had dinner and went to the terrace for a few drinks. When I went to the terrace, I saw them leaning on the railing. I warned them many times, but in vain. Around 3.30pm, we heard a loud thud and went up to check. It was then we saw the three lying in a pool of blood on the ground.”
The police received a call around <g data-gr-id="33">3:50am</g> and the trio were taken to the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Trauma Centre.
