A senior Air Force officer posted to the Eastern Air Command at Fort William here died after falling from the balcony of his second-floor home, a Defence Ministry spokesman said on Sunday.
The body of Wing Commander S.V.R. Moorthy was discovered around 5 a.m.
"It is not known what time he fell since the body was discovered only today (Sunday) morning," the spokesman said.
"It does not appear to be a case of suicide but rather an accident," he added.
Moorthy hailed from Hyderabad.
