BENGALURU: The 17-year-old who fell from the 18th floor of an apartment complex had asked security guards about easy access to the terrace, police investigation has revealed. Palash Chaudhry fell to his death at Prestige Shantiniketan Apartment in Whitefield early on Wednesday morning.
On Thursday, police recorded statements from his friends and the apartment’s security guards regarding his entry into the apartment. Police said Chaudhry left no note, but only sent a WhatsApp message to some of his friends.
Palash had taken a cab at 3 am to visit a friend who stays in the apartment on Wednesday, and fell around 6 am. One of his friends said Palash had an argument with that friend over a minor issue but felt that could not be the reason for the incident.
The International School Bengaluru at Whitefield-Sarjapur Road near Dommasandra Circle, where Palash studied, has written to parents warning them about dissemination of inaccurate information regarding the incident.
