On June 10, 2022, the owner of a wood products shop in Ulhasnagar town asked the labourer, Sanjiv Hariram Jaiswar, the climb up the outlet's roof to lay tarpaulins.
While laying the tarpualins, the labourer slipped, fell down and died on the spot, the official said.
The shop owner then did not hand over the body for postmortem. Instead, he and others rushed the victim to a private hospital where they allegedly fabricated the death certificate of another person by changing the date from April 10 to June 10.
