A resident of Plot No 32, Shivam Housing Society, Chandmari, Sangesh Krishnaji Urkude (40) was working with the NMC’s NDS at Hanuman Nagar Zone after retirement from the Army. After returning home from the office on Tuesday evening, he went to the terrace of his house to check the solar water tank.
