New Delhi: Mystery shrouds the death of an unidentified youth who died after falling from the fourth floor of a sealed pub, closed during the sealing drive, on Tuesday in south Delhi.

The incident took place at around 12 noon in Hauz Khas village. According to eyewitnesses, a loud thud was heard by some passers-by, who rushed to the spot and saw the youth lying in a pool of blood.

 

The youth, who appeared to be in his mid-20s, fell from the pub named “Village Deck”, which was shut down after the Municipal Corporation of Delhi sealing in October last.

“Soon, a police team, along with Crime Branch officers, dog squad and forensic experts reached the spot within 15 minutes after receiving the call,” a police officer said.

The police took the CCTV footage of nearby buildings to examine whether the youth fell accidentally or had committed suicide.

“We found a wallet from the deceased’s pocket containing cash. There was no identity card found from the deceased,” the official said. He also added that police team recovered some injections on the top of the building as well as from the dead youth’s pocket.
