State Islamic Religious Affairs Department assistant operation chief Ibrahim Md Jaki said, however, the man's legs were stuck among the roof tiles after he jumped from the third floor of the apartment.
Ibrahim said the man tried to regain entry into the apartment by clinging to the balcony railings, but could not do so.
