Initially, police registered an accidental death case at MIDC Bhosari police station.

According to police, during the investigation, the three accused informed that they were consuming alcohol with the deceased before the mishap.

However, after relatives of the Langote filed a complaint accusing foul play, cops initiated a further inquiry into this case.

As per police information, the four were having liquor, when a trivial argument escalated into a fist fight and the accused assaulted Langote during the incident. The trio even locked the door, so that Langote would not escape. In order to save himself, the deceased tried to jump off the balcony to the terrace of a neighbouring flat, misjudged the distance, and fell down.

A case has been registered at MIDC Bhosari police station under IPC sections 304(2),323,504, and 34 and further investigation is underway.
