Twenty-seven-year-old Japanese executive Kishi Taka Iro, who committed suicide at his rented accommodation in the DLF City Phase 2 area on the intervening night of Saturday and Sunday, had downloaded tips on ways of ending life from the internet on his laptop.
The police officials investigating the matter revealed this after taking his laptop into their possession.
However, since the downloaded suicide tips were in Japanese, the police had to hire the services of a translator.
The body of the victim was handed over to the Japanese embassy officials after postmortem. No suicide note was found.
The deceased had come to India around 15 days ago. He was a chemist employed with Kansai Paints of Japan and was a part of the support staff for its automobile customers in Gurgaon.
Iro was an employee of a Japanese automobile paint supplier. He was found hanging from the ceiling of his room by his friends, who later informed the police and the case was lodged.
