Mumbai : A 32-year-old information IT professional accidentally fell from the sixth floor of the PK Arch building at Kalina Village, Santacruz (E), and died on Friday morning. He was inebriated at the time of the incident, police said.

Dubey and his friend Rohit Sinha had been drinking the entire night. Dubey accidentally opened the window of the gallery, mistaking it for the washroom door.


According to Kailashchandra Awhad, senior police inspector, Vakola Police, “Dubey was in an inebriated state when he awoke around 5.30 am to use the washroom.

However, Sinha’s two other roommates were sleeping when the incident occurred.”

Dubey told me that he is going to the washroom. I do not know how he fell. My two other friends were present but they were sleeping at the time of the incident.”
