HYDERABAD: A day after the death of a four-month-old baby, who fell from her mother's hands on an escalator in City Centre Mall, the police registered a case of suspicious death and took up investigation into the case. The toddler is closely related to city police commissioner AK Khan. The toddler fell from her mother's hands after the latter's dress got stuck in the escalator in the mall and died while being shifted to a nearby hospital.
“We have registered a case under Section 174 (suspicious death) ,'' Banjara Hills ACP E Shanker Reddy said. Senior officials, however, said the family of the toddler did not lodge any complaint but it was the police which registered the case. “It was just an accident. There is no negligence on part of the mall management,'' police said.
