A 32-year-old share broker and charted accountant fell to his death from an apartment building in east Delhi’s Madhu Vihar area on Thursday night — moments after he called 100 and said his life was in danger.

Police said they have registered a case of murder.

The incident took place between 7.30 pm and 8 pm on Thursday at Milan Vihar Apartment in Patparganj. The victim, Govind, had gone to the apartment to meet a person, with whom he was having a money dispute, police sources said.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (east) Rishi Pal said, “The call (to 100) was made just a few seconds before (his death). By the time police reached, he was already injured. A team rushed him to the hospital, where doctors declared him dead.”

But his family alleged that the police did not act fast enough.
