New Delhi, April 4 IANS | 4 months ago

Two Nepalese youth died under mysterious circumstances after falling from the terrace of a hotel building here, police said Friday.


The victims - Jungbahadur, 22 and Prakash, 35 - fell from the terrace of a private hotel in the Paharganj area of central Delhi onto the road Thursday night.

They were rushed to the Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital where doctors declared them brought dead.

They came to Delhi Thursday in search of jobs and stayed with their relative at the hotel for the past three days.

"The deceased consumed liquor with their relative and fell off the building after a scuffle between them following a heated argument," said a police officer.

Prima facie, it seems to be a case of accidental death, but investigators are probing if there is any foul play.

"The victims' relative is being questioned," said the officer.
