Reached home late for lunch, Anand Singh witnesses daughter's death
Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala PWD secretary Anand Singh was late for his lunch on Thursday when he arrived at his Nikunjam Fortune apartment at Kowdiyar, at 2.30 pm. He heard a sound from the compound followed by a cry of the security staff for help. When reached the site, he saw his daughter lying on the floor covered with blood.
Singh’s wife and the younger daughter were in the room. Gopakumar, the security staff, initially thought it was some debris falling from the balcony. But he cried for help when he realised it was Bhavya Singh, daughter of Anand Singh.
Bhavya fell from the balcony of the ninth floor. Since there are no eye-witnesses, no one is sure of what happened. A chair was spotted in the balcony which has a handrail of decent height.
The forensic team has inspected the site. CCTV footage is being collected to find out more details.
Anand Singh is a 2000 batch officer of Kerala Cadre.
