According to police, the deceased has been identified as Ram Jaiswal, who was an auto-rickshaw driver and lived with his wife and son at Behrambaug in Jogeshwari. Following his surgery on July 19, the doctors had kept him under observation. However, on July 24, Ram went out for a stroll in the lobby, when his wife was sitting in his room and his son Prateek Jaiswal was asleep.
Speaking to mid-day, Prateek said, "He was worried about his illness and whether he would ever recover from it. I don't know why he took this step."
Naveenchandra Reddy, DCP, zone X, told mid-day, "His body has been shifted to Cooper hospital for post-mortem. The MIDC police have registered an accidental death case in the matter and are investigating it further."
