DUBAI – A police investigation is underway after an Indian civil engineer fell to his death from the sixth floor of a building in Sharjah.
The deceased has been identified as Kollam Sumesh, 24, a bachelor.
Sumesh plunged to his death from a building in Al Dhaid on July 31. His roommates last saw him talking angrily on the mobile phone before he threw it on the floor and headed to the balcony.
It was not clear what caused Sumesh to react angrily during the phone call.
His roommates were “shell shocked” about his death, said EP Johnson, president on the Indian Association of Sharjah.
Meanwhile, a Sharjah-based social worker handling the case said Sumesh’s relative in Abu Dhabi has been contacted. Sumesh’s body is likely to be repatriated on August 5.
Sumesh’s parents in Kochi, India have been informed about his death. They will claim his body at the Kochi Airport. ICA/Expat Media
