“It is so unfortunate. This is a hospital where people come to for medical treatment. It is so unfortunate that somebody has decided to come and commit suicide here. At about 9:00 am, I received a call that a somebody jumped off from our fifth floor. We don’t know what he was doing there because there is no ward on the fifth floor.


Patients are not expected to be there because the fifth floor houses our museum. The fifth floor is under lock and key because of the ongoing JOHESU Strike,” he told channels TV reporters 
Mr Bobade Public Relations officer UCH said further that the hospital did not know the man’s identity yet and the police had been invited to examine the dead body with a view to identify who he is.
