In a tragic incident, a teenage boy (17) jumped from the terrace of a ground plus three-Storey building. The incident occurred in Vasant Nagari area of Vasai East. The boy used to attend private coaching classes.
“He lived with his parents and siblings on the ground floor. We learnt that he had left his house saying he was going to attend his classes at 7:30am. But he climbed atop ground plus three storey building and jumped from the terrace of the building,” said a resident, who resides in the same locality.
Another local resident said that the boy was cheerful. He would always interact with neighbours. “He also participated in the Dahi Handi recently. We don’t know what happened to him suddenly and why did he took this extreme step. His coaching class bag was found next to his body,” said a neighbour.
Local residents covered the body with a towel before informing Mira Bhayandar Vasai Virar (MBVV) police. The area has been cordoned off and an ambulance was brought to carry the corpse to a nearby hospital to conduct its autopsy.
