24-year-old falls to death from sixth floor in UAE during Eid break


A 24-year-old Indian man has fallen to death from the sixth floor of a building in Sharjah on July 31. 

The man, identified as Sumesh, was of the south Indian state of Kerala and residing at Al Dhaid building where he fell to death. 

According to his friends, he was just talking to a friend over the phone when the incident happened. 

The friends of the Indian man described Sumesh to have some ‘personal issues’ that had been ‘bothering him for some time.’

“It was Eid Al Adha and our cook had made biryani for us. We were all cracking jokes and having a good time. In fact, even Cukco (Sumesh) was also laughing with us. He seemed happy. Nobody had anticipated this. I did sense a few times that something was troubling him and I even asked him about it, but he brushed it off,” roommate Dileep Kumaar told Khaleej Times. 

According to the local report, the police authorities have already launched an investigation and moved the boy to the forensic lab for an autopsy.
