Gurgaon, Jun 13: A senior IPS officer Manjit Singh Ahlawat died under mysterious circumstances on Saturday. He was posted as the Inspector General of India Reserve Battalion (IRB) at Bhondsi near Gurgaon. He jumped to death from a building called the Freedom Park Life apartments in Sector-57 near Tigra village. He apparently fell from the balcony of a fourth floor apartment.

With the family clueless on what led to such a drastic step by Ahlawat, the police investigating the matter are tight lipped about the matter. The family cremated the body on Sunday.

A case was filed at the Sadar police station under IPC Section 174. Postmortem conducted on his body at the Artemis hospital revealed that he was brought dead on arrival.

The postmortem report revealed that Ahlawat died of multiple fractures and internal bleeding. Deepak Mathur who conducted the postmortem commented, “He suffered multiple fractures and broken ribs. The impact crushed his lungs. His liver was also damaged. No sign of alcohol was found on the person."

Initial investigations reveled that the fourth floor apartment was rented by a woman who was living there with her brother who had moved in around 8-9 months back. One of the investigating officials said, “He had gone to attend a get together. There is no foul play detected as of now, but we are investigating all the possibilities."

Ahlawat's viscera have been sent for examination and further details will be made clear following the release of that report.

Manjit Singh Ahlawat joined the police in 1989 and holds the title of being the first joint police commissioner of Gurgaon and served from Nov 2007 to Jun 2009. He also served the Vigilance department during his posting in IRB, Bhondsi.
