Cops said Ankit Wadhwa was likely to appear for GMAT at a Delhi centre on the same day and the reason behind his decision of killing self was not immediately known. No suicide note was recovered.
A guard heard a noise in the wee hours at about 2 am and found Ankit on the ground. He without delay called Police Control Room and also informed his uncle Chunni Lal Wadhwa, who stays in the flat No. 523A on the 23rd floor of the tower-5. A team of police arrived at the site and took him to a local private hospital, where the doctors announced him brought dead.
As per the deceased’s uncle, Ankit had visited Gurgaon on Saturday to appear for his GMAT on Monday. “He had been engaged in exam preparation since he had come. He had his dinner with us at about 10.30 pm on Sunday and left for his room. It was after 2 am when the guard informed us about the incident. Then, we saw him lying on the ground with blood all around,” said Chunni Lal.
Ankit, hailing from Rajasthan’s Ganganagar, had completed his integrated Msc in Economics from IIT Kanpur in 2015 and began working as an analyst at JP Morgan Chase in Mumbai. However, he left the job in March and moved to Ganganagar, his native place. Ankit’s father works in the insurance field.
One of deceased’s childhood friends told TOI that Ankit was a sincere student.
Inspector Gaurav Phogat, SHO, Sushant Lok Police station, said that Ankit had been depressed for the last few months and was undergoing treatment for it. “Prima facie it seems that he was depressed but the actual cause behind it is not known,” he said.
“Life also gives us second chances. If it hadn’t, we would be under immense pressure of getting things right in the first attempt and would be leaving a lot of money on the table by not taking necessary risks. We would be leading the life of a perfectionist,” he had posted on his facebook wall on July 10.
Ankit’s Social media activities say he was a marathon runner and cricket lover, besides a student of economics.
“We have recovered his cell phone and our technical team is trying to open its security lock to know if he had talked to anyone before taking the extreme step,” SHO Phogat further said.
Police have registered a case under CrPC section 174 and handed over the body to his family members after the autopsy.
