NEW DELHI: A young pilot died after he fell from the seventh floor of a building in Sector 9 of Rohini here on Saturday.
Mumbai resident Jonathan Joseph Fernandis, 25, had obtained his pilot licence in the United States and had come to the Capital to appear for a qualifying test organised by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.
“He had joined a coaching centre in Paschim Vihar and had been living in Multan Nagar,” said a police officer.
Jonathan and his friends had gathered at the Jaya Apartment residence of pilot Hitesh Mahashay to celebrate his birthday, when he allegedly fell from the terrace at 12:35 a.m. and died.
Inquest proceedings into the death have been initiated.
The police came to know about the incident after they received a call from Saroj Hospital, where the victim was rushed after the incident.
A police official said preliminary enquiry suggested that Jonathan lost his balance.
“Over a dozen friends were present when the incident took place. We have informed his family about the incident,” the official said, adding that post mortem will be conducted after their arrival.
The police have recorded the statement of the friends present at the party.
