Hyderabad: Student attempts to jump to adjacent building, dies


Hyderabad, Dec 23: A 19-year-old engineering student died today after he "accidentally" fell from a three-floor hostel while attempting to jump to an adjacent building here, police said.

Sai Krishna, a B Tech first-year student at a private college, was trying to cross over to an adjoining building from his hostel last night in Petbasheerabad area, but failed to place his foot properly on the bordering wall of the adjacent building and suddenly fell, Petbasheerabad Police Station Inspector D V Ranga Reddy said.


"Sai sustained serious head injuries and was immediately taken to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to injuries in the early hours," he said.

"Sai's friend had crossed over by leaping to the adjoining building, but for Sai it was unfortunate. As per preliminary investigation, it was a habitual practice for some of students to jump to adjacent buildings (hostels). But it seems it was the first time that Sai had tried such an act," the officer said.

Local TV channels aired CCTV camera footage showing Sai "unsuccessfully" trying to cross over to another building and falling down from the building. A case under Section 174 (suspicious death) of CrPC has been registered in connection and further probe is on, police added.
