After a video surfaced showing a young man falling from a building in Ghaziabad on Nov. 3, his family claims he was killed, while police have registered a case but are investigating whether it could have been an accident or suicide.
The family said the victim, engineering student Hardik Vats, had left for college and called around 3 p.m. to say he would be back home.
At around 4:45 PM, a stranger called the family on his phone and told them to come to Apex Society in Siddharth Vihar. By the time they got there, the young man had been taken to hospital by locals and doctors later pronounced him dead, sources at Vijay Nagar Police Station said.
He fell from the 19th floor, locals told police; the CCTV footage showed him falling, but not how it happened.
The family claims that the society where he fell has no acquaintances or relatives of his. There is no information as to why he had gone there.
The police have filed a murder report.
