A 26-year-old software engineer with Infosys, Chandana Nagesh, died after falling from the window of her 8th floor apartment in an upscale residential complex in Bengaluru.

The guards claim they heard a loud thud and rushed to the spot to find Chandana lying in a pool of blood. She was rushed to a nearby medical facility where she was declared brought dead, the officials said.
Her body was shifted to Victoria Hospital for postmortem. A case of unnatural death has been registered and cops are investigating the cause of death.
