Kaif passed away around 1am on Saturday and the body has been handed over to his family, reported PTI quoting official.
He was on ventilator support since hospitalization as the body was not supporting respiration while his brain had also stopped working, the official said.
An FIR in connection with the lift crash was lodged at the local Bisrakh police station under IPC sections for negligence with respect to machinery and for culpable homicide not amounting to murder, among other charges.
Four officials of Girdhari Construction private limited, hired by NBCC, have been already arrested by the police, which have prima facie found that the service lift was operated negligently despite rain in the early hours of September 15, according to officials.
