A Russian national allegedly jumped off a multi-storeyed building at Thiruvananthapuram International Airport and committed suicide. The 30-year-old took the extreme step on Thursday night after completing immigration clearance and other procedures.
The deceased is identified as Dany, 30, and had booked a flight ticket to Mumbai, the police said.
The foreigner jumped off a building in the highly secured area, and officials consider it a serious security breach. "The entire place is covered by close circuit camera. The incident took place in a highly secured zone, and this shows serious security breach," sources said.
After clearing immigration procedures, the foreigner was seen walking up and down security area. He was also seen performing yoga. After some time he climbed the railings and jumped. Usually, security persons would check such unusual behaviours. The Russian was restless for a long time. However, none of the security persons approached him, a source said.
He fell to the ground floor, near the customs area. Though he was rushed to the hospital, his life could not be saved.
His body is kept in the mortuary of Thiruvananthapuram Medical College and authorities have informed Russian Consulate.
