Mumbai: The post-mortem of Mast Daga (17), a student of St Xavier’s college, south Mumbai, who went missing before his body was found in Matheran, revealed that he had suffered a heart attack along with multiple fractures and injuries. Daga was a
resident of Thane.
According to the CCTV footage of CST and Neral railway stations, he was travelling alone. Some locals had even seen him sitting alone at the hill station.
According to a police officer, Daga left from his college on Monday morning and went to Neral. Further, he proceeded to go to Matheran in a shared car and sat at the hill point for many hours. The boy had
fallen from the hill point, suffering multiple injuries and a heart attack in the process.
“It is unclear as to why he went there and what were the problems he was suffering from. We are yet to discuss these things with his parents. There is a possibility that the boy had jumped from the hill point,” said a police official.
The last transaction the deceased made was from a Mulund-based ATM for `500 and from then on, his phone was switched off.
One of his close relatives describes Daga’s parents as the coolest. In fact the reason for keeping his name Mast was that they believed in living the life to the fullest and wanted the same for his child.
DCP Sunil Lokhande, said, “The boy’s parents Naresh and Renuka Daga has registered a missing complaint with Thane’s Wagale Estate police station late on Monday.” Daga’s body was found at the hill station on Tuesday evening.
