His body was found in front of the house where he used to stay alone in a second floor apartment.

Moorty, a native of Hyderabad, had come to Kolkata around six months back. His family, including his wife, daughter (22) and son (15), are in Hyderabad.

“Moorty died last night after falling from this house’s balcony on second floor. It is not known what time he fell since the body was discovered only in the morning at around five,” Wing Commander SS Birdi, Ministry of Defence spokesperson in Kolkata, said.

“It does not appear to be a case of suicide but rather an accident,” Birdi added.

Police are investigating the cause. Side by side the Air Force has also started a departmental inquiry into the death.
