A 34-year-old doctor died after falling off a third floor balcony at Misrod locality in Bhopal, police said on Friday.
Dr Akhilesh Mishra’s 3-year-old daughter had accidentally locked the door of the bedroom of his house in second floor when she went to sleep.
He decided to enter the bedroom from the balcony as he didn’t want to disturb his sleeping daughter by breaking the bedroom door.
Mishra went to his neighbour’s house in the third floor on Thursday night and tied a bed sheet from the window-grill there. He tried to go to the balcony of his house using the bed sheet.
While going down, Mishra lost his grip on the bed sheet and fell sustaining serious head and back injuries, police said.
“He was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The police received the information about his death from the hospital at about 2.30am after which it registered the matter under relevant sections of IPC,” said assistant sub-inspector Lakhan Lal Namdeo.
He said that Mishra’s neighbour asked him not to climb down to his house but the doctor refused.
