As per media reports, the man had been after the girl, who is his neighbour, for a few months, but she repeatedly snubbed him. But, Hussain did not give up, and made another try on Thursday.
The two meet at Raghuleela mall, where Hussain again proposed to her. But, her reply was the same, and this led to a fight between the two. After his latest attempt also failed, he decided to jump off the mall.
While falling, Hussain hit a light pole, which aggravated his injuries. After being initially rushed to the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation Hospital, he was then transferred to KEM.
