A 32-year-old Information Technology professional, who had just returned from Belgium, died after falling off the sixth floor of a residential building in Santacruz suburb of Mumbai, police said on Saturday.

“Dubey had returned from Belgium on Thursday. He went to sleep in his room after reportedly being exhausted due to jet lag following a 12-14 hour flight. The French window of the room in which he was sleeping was open and did not have a grill,” the official said.

The police official said that Dubey went near the window at around 5:30 am on Friday and his fall may have been caused by sleepiness.
