20-yr-old falls 19 stories to death

The police has initiated inquiries into the death of a 20-year-old management student, who fell 19 stories to his death from the window of a Peddar Road building in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Suicide has not been ruled out, as his death came immediately after he met his former girlfriend, and the break-up had left him severely depressed, the police said.

According to the Gamdevi police, the deceased, identified as Dhwanil Shroff, was found lying in a pool of blood in the compound of the Woodland Society on Peddar Road at around 1.30 am on Sunday. He was rushed to Breach Candy Hospital where he was declared dead before admission.

“Dhwanil was attending a small get-together in a 19th floor flat of the building, where his friend Janvi Goyal lives. She had invited many of her friends over to watch a football match together. Dhwanil excused himself suddenly and went to the kitchen. When he did not return for a long time, one of his friends went to check on him and was alarmed when Dhwanil was nowhere to be seen,” said Sudhir Belankar, police inspector, Gamdevi police station.

Dhwanil’s friends rushed downstairs and ran into the watchman, who had just found Dhawnil lying in the compound. They then rushed him to the hospital and informed the police.

“One of the attendees at the party was a girl with whom Dhwanil had broken up two years ago, as their families were opposed to their relationship. Dhwanil’s friends have said that the break-up left Dhwanil shattered. Meeting her again might have pushed him off the edge,” said an officer, adding that some bottles of alcohol had been found in the house, and all the attendees had been subjected to medical tests to confirm or eliminate consumption.

Dhwanil was the son of a stockbroker and was pursuing a BMS course with the Jai Hind College. He used to live with his family on Warden Road.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
